So I've been making cakes for class and for DH's work and stuff and I'll just bring them home for my bro or my mom to eat.

So my DH's family wanted to know when they were getting a cake as well. Well, I don't have to make a cake for another three weeks for class but I wanted to make a cake to show off my newly found skills.

My question is...what the heck do I make for them???? I don't mind making one for them I just have no imagination right now and i can't figure out how I should decorate it.

If anyone can give me ideas it would be awesome....if not, I'll think of something detective.gif

Check the "other cakes" section... That's where I look for inspiration for "just because" cakes!

Is there a technique you have been wanting to try? Look at all the cakes on here. Take something off one or two of them to comb ine into one great creation of your own icon_smile.gif

How about fondant circle cutouts in different sizes with a bow on top to match and tip #10 balls around the base.

If you've never worked with edible transfers, maybe you could make photo transfers with pictures of DH's family and then create a cake incorporating them.

You get to try a new technique and they'll all want to eat their own faces.

YOu might also try to incorporate the things you need the most practice on. Like roses, maybe, or dots. (I have trouble with dots, as odd as it may sound.) Writing is always a good thing to practice, too!
