Help! I have a last minute cake order and have no idea what to do. The customer needs to feed around 40 and wants these two logos on the cake.

I was initially thinking a round layered cake with many of the 'v' logo around the side with a big 'saints' logo on top (standing upright). both chocolate transfer?

any better ideas? The saints logo is very detailed. I have only done chocolate transfer once, so i am not sure how well i could get it to turn out.

It is due on Easter for a group of computer game animators. This makes me very nervous since they do graphics for a living and are very detail oriented.

Thanks for any and all ideas! Kris

I have found CTs easy to do. Not sure yu have to be sooooooo detailed oriented even w/who it's foricon_smile.gif
Do you have means to make frosting sheet pix? That's what I would do. Put them on fondant plaques. Just roll the fondant rather thin but still thick enought that it won't stretch out of shape when you handle it.

is a frosting sheet pix just an edible image? if so, then no i don't. i called a couple bakeries today to see if i could pay them to print one for me but they didn't have the hardware.

i didn't have the time to start on this cake tonight. the cake for an event tomorrow took longer then i thought. so i will have to tackle this when the kids go to bed saturday night and hope it turns out since i will be pressed for time.

would still love to hear suggestions on cake shape, etc!

you can actually print this out on regular computer paper if you don't have an edible printer.

place it on a gumpaste plaque and let it dry hard.

Place on the cake a few small marshmellows so the image can float over the cake, and it can be removed for eating.

Hope this helps you out for now.

TheButterWench, that's a great idea!!! That would make it quite easy, especially when there isn't much time to work on it.

Good luck!!

thank you thank you!

the cake ended up being postponed. when it does happen the customer now wants artwork from the game in addition to the logos.

does anyone out there that has edible image printing capabilities be willing to print & mail to me? What kind of cost is associated with this?

I think the two logos are doable. However, I think that the client might be asking too much by adding even more with the artwork from the game.

If you do add the artwork, I would charge more.
