Have you googled over the hill cakes? Or even done a search on CC? That's where I would start. You can even ask her places she has been and where she would like to go and do a cake with signs and landmarks. I did a cake like that...A woman wanted a cake with him on a motorcycle and a road with landmarks in his life. Although I wasn't happy with the cake..they were. I thought my motorcycle and man were pitiful but they loved it. Hope that helps...Remember don't worry about it being Amazing...for your shop. The cake is for your client...Capture who she is..make a cake that will resemble her or her make her happy! Good Luck! thumbs_up.gif

Whoops I didn't even read the first idea someone posted. I just sorta went for what popped into my head. Of course after I drew it I realized you could add a little "speed limit" sign and have a big 50 on it.

i did a "road of life" cake for an order once, like mentioned before i asked for landmarks in the client's life and incorporated them all the way up the winding road until it got to the current age. looking back i did a pretty sloppy job on this cake, but we learn as we go don't we? =D good luck!
