I have a mom who is having a 3rd birthday party with a Crayola theme for her son next weekend. She requested a stacked cake (I decided on a 12" and 8" to meet her serving needs) with primary colors and a number 3 on top. She said she would like stripes, dots, and crayons incorporated into it in some way. I am having trouble figuring out how to incorporate the crayons into the cake. I was thinking of doing stripes on the bottom cake and dots on the top and then the number three at the top - but I don't know what to do about the crayons........... icon_cry.gif I am planning on icing in buttercream and using fondant for the decorations (blue, red, green, and yellow). ANY help is greatly appreciated. TIA!!! Tina

Easy! Check out this cake.

And instead of the white base frosting, you could do it orange - like the crayola box.

Thanks for the suggestion - that cake is too cute! I never thought about making the crayons that way!

I do like the cake above, but I think you can cut them out of fondant and scatter them around the cake along with your dots. On top you can have a crayon writing the birthday message. If you make some a week ahead of time and let them dry, you can also stand some up sticking out of the cake too.

Good luck.
