Strange request for a Tattoo cake!

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have a request for tattoo cake! Yeah, weird! And this is for her wedding cake!! Does anyone have any pictures of such a cake? I have searched the web and have not found anything, she wants the "tattoo" colors like the blues and reds that are typically used. She wants two sparrows with wings up and a heart with one of those scrolls across the heart with their names on it. I drew up the design (which took me forever) and I am waiting for an ok. I was going to Airbrush it on there but then she told me she wanted this cake for Wednesday! Yes this Wednesday! So I am bringing my colored design to a grocery store and having them print it out as an eatable image. Any photos that you may come across would be great, I really need some ideas for the sides and a border. She really likes the roses as well. TIA!

Wow that is going to be a head scratcher for me. Heres a bump to keep you out there. I would talk more with the bride and possibly draw a cake design to show what she wants and where she wants it. Sorry no help here. icon_sad.gif

I had to do a tatoo cake for a anniversary of a local tatoo studio. It was a sheet cake though, so it had random "old school" tatoos scattered around. It's posted here, but I don't think it's what you're looking for. I found a lot of ideas online. People ask for the darndest things on a cake sometimes!

Maybe you can do a vine with roses as the border "old school" tattoo look to it?

have you thought about searching online for tatoo art and using a picture from there? you can get flash art online for tats! and the sparrow/heart one is pretty common. GOOD LUCK!! sounds neat!

your post reminded me of two things one a cupcake i saw on bakerella's blog see below, and the idea of just piping( in the colours requested), like the henna tattoo cakes seen on charm city cakes, there is lots of clip art and magazines and photos of tatoos and you could pipe them on a cake and it might look quite elegant go to flickr and search tatto cakes there are a few ideas good luck

I remember seeing a cake here on CC -- it was a heart shaped cake turned upside down so the point was at the top. For the bottom, she put on fondant blue jean cutoffs and did a tattoo right above the waistline, like in the small of her back area. It was a pretty cool cake actually. You'll have to search the galleries for it -- I don't remember who made it. Hope that gives you some ideas though! icon_biggrin.gif

Here's such an awesome Rockabilly/Sailor Jerry tattoo cake a lady made for her friends. My husband and I wished we'd thought of it for our wedding...we loved it!!

Of course, this is quite small...but could be added to accent larger cake(s).

My first thought too was of the butt cakes, or even a boostier (sp?) cake, since ladies do find ways of getting tatoos on their bums or bosoms!

Call me crazy, but reading this got me a little teary-eyed. The tattoo that you described sounds like the one my dad got on his arm when he was in the Navy. Dad passed away 8 years ago. Perhaps the bride has similar memories of a loved one?

you can get alot of ideas if you google "sparrow tattoo"
and like the previous posted pics, I think if it were painted on fondant, it would look very much like a tattoo.

I thought this was an odd request but when I looked up sparrow tattoos out curiosity I found this. "Sparrows symbolize love, dedication and trust. Sparrows mate for life and will always return home no matter how far they travel. They should always be tattooed in pairs." So if you like tattoos this is very appropriate for a wedding.
