I have a client who is looking for a 60th birthday cake to feed 25-30 people. She provided me with a list of elements to incorporate into the design. There's so many I am completely overwhelmed with where to start! Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!




Her beloved beagle Lucy

Retired School bus driver

Library book – she is a volunteer for the local library

Meals on Wheels

She’s a Mets fan

Maybe sneakers, bowling shoes and golf shoes would be neat around the outer edge

Great neighbor – takes care of the kids and animals

Sounds like she wants a scrap book, maybe a scrap book cake?

A scrapbook cake!  Intriguing idea @craftybanana  

I did a 40th birthday cake with a lot of elements.  Maybe something like this?

You could make a single tier, put black silhouettes of a golfer, a bowler etc around the sides and top maybe green piped grass with a golf car driven by the bus driver and the neighbour and the dog as fondant figurines, passing a road sign written library. ..

But it's quite overloaded, you are right. I would focus one one or max 2 themes.
