Irish themed cake

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have a family reunion coming up that I might be attending. If I do attend, I might do a cake to show off my cake skills. Apparently the last few years, they've been doing themed family reunions (last year was the first time I'd been to in over 5 years). Last year was a mexican themed and they decorated the place with mexican stuff and encouraged people to make mexican dished. I think this year, the theme is Irish. Any suggestions or pics of cakes I could do that would fit this theme? I thought about doing a rainbow with a pot of gold and some green clovers, but thought that might be a little too "St. Patrick's Day". Thanks.

Celtic knots! Would look great on the side of the cake. A harp, fondant sheep, Guiness mug with some froth on top. A fondant Irish flag. I want to see it when you're done! thumbs_up.gif

Celtic knots for sure (my wedding band has a celtic knot design, so I'm biased); clover; the Blarney stone; a map of Ireland; the flag; etc., etc.

You could use and Ogham pattern on the side. It is ancient celtic writing that is now strewn on the original translation rocks all over the Irish countryside. My husband and my wedding bands are ogham and they mean true love always. We honeymooned in Ireland and half of the fun of the trip was driving all over the Irish countryside looking for the stones. I can email you some pics if you would like.

I have a celtic cake in my gallery. I used a cookie mold to make a celtic heart and used a gaelic phrase I found online. Hope it helps! icon_smile.gif

I am a little more of the opinion to do something more sophisticated, like a black on white celtic knot. There are many images you can find by doing a google search. I do likt the one below. It has a touch of whimsy, but doesn't look like a lucky charms commercial. icon_biggrin.gif

Of course, I've had 2 glasses of wine, what do I know??? icon_redface.gif

Thanks for all the suggestions. I saw my mom today and asked her about the reunion. My parents aren't going to go because it's being held at a certain relative's house and my parents aren't happy with them and my brother is also not going. So I guess I won't be going to the family reunion after all; about the only reason I was excited about going to the reunion was so I could show off my cake icon_biggrin.gif

Oh well, no biggy. I should be able to do a couple of cakes next month. I want to try my first cupcake cake for my bf's niece's birthday. I think his mother said it was going to be a tea party themed. I'll definately have to make another post for suggestions on that icon_smile.gif
