I need ideas for a cake for a gardener. Not the type you actually gardens (flowers, veggies) but for a man who cuts lawns for a living. It is a small 9" round and a very limited budget so no gumpaste lawnmowervor anything like that. Please help!
ADoes it need to say anything? You could pipe grass with a grass head and do it shorter/leave it bare and paintbrush/colouring stipple in the form of the words you are doing/numbers of his age etc? Bit of of a difficult one without a model on it! I'm not sure this makes sense but I know what I mean in my head!
A[LIST] You could punch out a few blossoms to look like daisies/buttercups to break it up a bit?
Along the lines of CakeChemistry - you could pipe your grass but have a single dandelion weed (grass humor).
AOr a mole hill with Oreo soil?
AI would probably make a rake and some hedge clippers out of fondant/gum paste. Even if it is more decoration than is technically required for what I charged I would find it easier to just make a quick couple of 3D tools like that than to try and come up with something else. :)
Thanks all! I think that by combining all the ideas given, I could make a great cake! Even making a simple rake and clippers, it's no big deal as they are simple to make and don't require too much time and materials.
Glad we could help! looking forward to pictures :)
That is very cute! Will google right now, thanks!
Thanks everyone for your ideas! Here is the finished cake. I was able to talk my customer into spending a few more $$ for the gumpaste decorations!
You did a great job. I guess my dandelion got mowed down - LOL
Adorable lawnmower cake. Loved seeing all the idea photos and the final cake photo.
AWhat a cute cake that ended up being!
