I received a request for a retirement cake (it will be a sheet cake) that combines cowboy/western elements with a motorhome or RV. I have absolutely no idea where to even start! They seem like two completely un-related elements to me! icon_cry.gif The client wants the cake inscription to read "Happy RV Trails."

The one idea I've had is to maybe do a cowboy on a horse in the foreground with an RV and a sunset in the background. But I'd love to hear any other thoughts anyone might have! Thanks for your help!

and I immediately thought of a 3D cake..

every RV needs a good set of HORNS -- as in BULL horn -- TEXAS LONGHORN style on the top.

and then I could certainly use a spotted cow paint job

and it's got a tail that could be tied on to the front bumper of the little dingy (car) it's towing behind -- that car could look like a little ol' calf.

and then add a cowboy hanging out the window or ridin' on top lariat in hand

Instead of the RV pulling a car, you could have a saddled horse attached to the rear bumper.

I thought along the same lines as Doug. Cowboy riding an rv. Maybe the rv is tied like a horse to a hitching post. Or switch it around and have a poor horse standing at a campground with the green fake grass carpet and lawnchairs, fire ring, awning, etc. The horse could be towing a trailer. Ok. I have no idea how to do all that on a sheetcake, but the pictures in my mind are quite amusing! icon_lol.gif Good luck! Post pics of your finished cake.

How about an RV traveling down a dirt road lined by some log fences with some mesas in the background (whole southwestern look). Then the border or edging you could pipe a rope, throw on a hankie in the corner, a bale of hay in the corner. Or pipe a cartoonish looking cowboy in all his getup on top of the RV rolling down the road.
