I need help. I have a going-away-cake request for a young man that's leaving to study in Spain (wish I could do that!!). His sister wants the cake to be fun. The cake is for 60 to 70 servings so maybe a two tier round cake would look better that just one level. Please help me with ideas. Maybe I can include Spain's flag colors but what else so it will be a fun cake icon_confused.gif

Thank you all!!

i see a stack of "text"books

"Senoritas for the Taking"

"Zagat Guide to the Best Food in Spain"

"Playboy Guide to the Best XXXXXX in Spain" (could slap a "censored" label across this one!)

"Life's A Beach on The Spanish Riviera"

"Tapas for Two"

"Surviving the Bulls" (reference to the running of the bulls)

"Bullfighting for Dummies" (do take off on the Dummies book series)

"Essential Spanish: What to say to get XXXXXXXXXX! (again censored!!!!!!!!!)

a Translation dictionary -- PRian Spanish / Spainish Spanish / Barcelonian Spanish

"Surviving the Plains when it Rains" or What to do when it Rains on the Plains (can you guess the musical that's a reference to???)


(wish I could think of one that played of flamenco or tango)

Doug, you are my hero. I was thinking of text books on top of a suitcase with some underware, jeans, Spongebob's legs (he likes Spongebob and he's just 20 years old) hanging out of one of the sides. Those text book titles are excellent, I'll use them. Thank you soooo much!!! icon_wink.gif
