I was hoping to wrack your brains for ideas on a cake for a girl that is graduating. She wants to study fingerprints, forensics, anthroplogy, etc. I was thinking anfinger print card, maybe some bones on the cake. Does anyone out there have any other good ideas or suggestions on how to make either of these?
I'd appreciate any suggestions/ideas you'd have.

maybe a magnifying glass next to a fingerprint and/or bones?

I like this idea!

What kind of a sense of humor does she have? A "body outline" would be funny!

I have a degree in Criminal Justice...and I would find the body outline hysterical...

As a scientist myself, I would go that route. I would do the DNA double helix (2D is simple enough, not sure how to do that in 3D), microscope, beakers, etc. You could make the cake in the shape of a body part with blood coming out of it--but that may be ghoulish! You could do a square cake and model the "Clue" board and make a fondant candlestick, knife, etc. Good luck.

I like the idea of a fingerprint card. You can google high res images for fingerprints and/or cards and you could do an edible image.

Here's some examples...

Also, this poster is pretty could make each item and place it on the cake, and then instead of "got forensic science" you could write Congratulations... or somthing corny like "All the evidence says that you graduated" You could even replace some things with a cap or diploma, or something like that.

Hope this helps.
