hello all.

i am doing a cake in the theme of 1964. the client wants to depict events like the opening of shea stadium, the release of the first gi joe, the first ford mustand and something to do w the beatles. im only charging 100.00 so im not hand crafting each item im going to have to work them in as edible images. im kind of stumped as to lay out. for 100.00 im thinking i need to get creative but i cant put 40 hours into it either. any ideas on making such random items mesh together cohesively? it doesnt have to be in tiers. i dont like to put anything inedible on my cakes. thank you for any ideas you may have!

AHow big is the cake going to be? That sounds like a lot of details for the price.

For the mustang I'd print it out, and layer it on gumpaste so you can have it standing upright. Then I guess have the Beatles logo, picture of the staduim and GI joe around the sides and stuff? Not sure, but yeah you definitely can't put in 40 hours of work. Edible images seem to be your best bet.
