Need help w/ tropical theme cake!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey Friends!!

I need some ideas for a tropic theme cake!! It's going to be a round cake either 8" or 9" or 10". Haven't decided the size yet because I want to make it look very tropical!! I might need lots of room!! My mom is the manager of a school kitchen. All the schools in the parish get together at the end of the year & have a huge banquet. This year's theme is tropical.

Let me know any pics or ideas or website or anything that could help me.
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!

Here's an idea since you would be doing it on a round cake. Make a tropical island in the middle of the cake- with trees, flowers, and the like. Have the icing around the cake be blue to represent water, then out tropical fish on the sides of the cake.
