I'm doing a couple of cakes for a guy who works with my husband (dept. of transportation). So far I'm doing a wine bottle in a crate cake, like the one in my photos. Then I'll probably make a sheet cake, and am at a loss for ideas. I'd like to do a cake to tie in with the wine theme, but could also do a transportation theme, any suggestions?

OOOOOO, I like Doug's idea of a suit case! You could also do a train, the Eiffel Tower, a cake in the shape of Italy, France, etc.

But, I think the suitcase would be perfect with some "stickers" on it representing different countries. Very cute.

This has nothing to do with transportation, but I have been waiting for an opportunity to do a retirement cake with Elmer Fudd on it ... I want to write "West and Wewaxation at Wast!"

I am thinking it has to have some grapes somehow incorporated since you said about wines. I do like the suitcase idea though as well. **light bulb goes on** A suitcase (decorated w/stickers), partially opened w/ grapes, cheese, and wine inside. Hope you follow where my rambling thoughts are If not, PM me and I will try and draw it out for you.
