A client wants a cake for her boyfriend that includes all his favorite things for ex: his 350z car, jordan shoes, soccer and baseball. Im afraid its going to look too busy with all those items. Is there anyway i can incorporate them without it looking confusing. Any help would be great icon_smile.gif

I'm not sure how big this cake needs to be, but you could do two tiers. One designed like a soccer ball, one like a baseball. Have his 350z made out of fondant on top. The rest of his favorite things could be placed around the bottom tier. Just an idea! Good luck!

How crazy do you want to go? Could you build the 350z car and then put the stuff spilling out of the back seat?

I think you first have to decide if u r willing to make a 350Z out of fondant/gum paste?
It's a lot of work and I don't know how you priced the cake.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things!

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things!

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eye lashes
Silver white winters that melt into spring
These are a few of my favorite things!

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember
my favorite things
and then I don't feel so bad!

I love the idea of the car with the stuff coming out of it! She wanted everything 3D so i think it would be best if i did it that way. You all have no idea how much this means, i was so stuck it was driving me crazy!!

Well I am glad we could help! Althought I suspect that making the 3D car will drive you crazy too! icon_wink.gif
