Strange request for a Tattoo cake! - Page 2

post #16 of 31
I think this is kind of the idea she was looking for. This is not my tattoo, but I have one similar to it across my sholders. Very Sailor Jerry...(I am an old skool rockabilly chick...lol)

not sure if anyone thought of this, or how big the cake is, but if it's multy tiered stacked or something, maybe a "tattoo" barbed wire or tribal design around the cake??? on one of the cakes that doesn't have anything. just a thought if you were still searching for ideas!!!

I am always searching for ideas!! She decided on a 3 tier cake 10, 8, 6 all 3" cakes. I am going to "tattoo" a sparrow on the top tier side and use fondant for the scroll and put a heart in the middle tier having the scroll go through it and then a bird on the bottom. I am going to do an eatable image of the birds and put them on fondant then do the heart the same way and the scroll will be 3D looking. What do you think?? I am doing plain white roses on the top, she said to be creative, but I fear there will be to much color.

Tattoo's are REALLY colorful. Thats the point. You want to be able to see them. Specially the really elementary tattoos, those were full of colors. I think this sounds like a very awesome cake. She must have a really outgoing personality to want a cake like this. Have fun with it!

Actually, the opposite may happen. The tattoo will be very colorful and will really stand out, perhaps too much if everything else is white. You may need color in the flowers to balance everything.

What colors would you recommend? The colors are just like the ones on the arm at the top of this page. Maybe yellow?

Maybe the roses could have the tips dyed the colors that are in the sparrows (bright blue, red, yellow, orange), that way the colors tie into each other...just a thought. icon_wink.gif

I wouldn't use the edible image on the fondant for the tattoos. I'd attempt to recreate them with food color, vanilla extract and a paint brush. It'll give it a very nice effect without risking the edible image not being flush on the fondant. Maybe use a flesh tone fondant for whatever is getting the tattoo. Just my thought. I love the ideas though. I can't wait to see the final pictures.

Google Ed Hardy and you will get tons of old school tat graphics. I would use melted chocolates to pipe the tattoos and attach to the sides, etc. I think it will give the depth and detail you are looking for and this medium is sturdy and consistent, albeit a pain in the butt to keep the chocolate warm but worth it, I think.

Sounds fun, I would love to do one of these cakes..... DH's b-day is in Nov. and I think I just figured out what the theme of his cake will be! Thanks icon_smile.gif

I was thinking that roses could be orangy red with tips yellow or the reverse. Sort of like the "Peace" rose only stronger colors. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.justourpictures.com/roses/imgs/chicago-peace-rose.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.justourpictures.com/roses/chicago-peace-rose.html&h=563&w=750&sz=58&hl=en&start=2&um=1&tbnid=mQcuy0xxJujcVM:&tbnh=106&tbnw=141&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dpeace%2Brose%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rls%3DGGLD,GGLD:2004-10,GGLD:en%26sa%3DN Actually, this rose is "Chicago Peace" which has the stronger colors than the original "Peace" rose.
