Really?? The things people try and throw together in a cake... I have no ideas, shame on them for trying to combine 3 total random and uncomplimentary themes.

Good luck, if it were me I would suggest two separate cakes focusing on each twin as their own person.

Yeah I would definately suggest doing 2 seperate cakes, if not it's just going to be a random looking cake- I hate doing cakes I dont like but if that's what they ask for, maybe a topsy turvy with maybe 1 tier cooking another birds and the other football, arrrg, I like mine to look balanced too!

How about a Ratatouille style cake? I big pot of soup cooking, a bird perched on the rim stirring, and a ball floating in the soup.

I have nothing to say that is actually going to help you lol - just wanted to say that from such a weird grouping - Cheatize your idea actually sounds great and something like that would work icon_smile.gif

How about barbecuing birds in the middle of a soccer ground?

Just curious - Are they looking for a humorous or traditional cake? Forgive me in advance cause I'm over tired and punchy but when I read your post all I kept seeing is birds playing soccer - lol I'm sorry...
