I'm a hobby baker who is still learning, I'd love to get to the point where I could set up a business but in the mean time, I have friends and family who are ALL more than happy to get me to practice doing cakes for them which is where I am now.
Problem is at the moment a friend has asked me to do a cake for a 70th birthday, for a woman who likes crafts like gardening, knitting, sewing, art etc and loves roses/orchids and the cake has gone from being for 15 people to feed 50! I was thinking a basket with tools and knitting needles hanging out the side but to feed 50 it would have to be huge! I know its a hobby and I'm not expected to produce total artistic perfection but it's someone's 70th, I don't want a naff looking cake just so I can practise a bit more but I just can't think of how to design it. Any one have any ideas what I could do? Its like my brain gave up and refused to pitch in anymore. Thanks guys.
