At a loss - how do I make this cake look good?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

It's MIL's 70th birthday. Dh asked me to make a cake "with a large hen on top and then have four chicks around her (representing her 4 kids), and then 13 mini chicks around those 4 (representing her 13 grandchildren)." She always refers to herself as a mom with four chickies.

I was like, "whaa? Yikes"

Any idea how I can make this work? I am at a loss on this one. Perhaps a hen made out of RKT? Do I make it tiered?

At. A. Loss!

Do a search for "chicken", or "hen" in the galleries, and there's some ideas.

 

I would make it tiered, and put the "grandchildren" on the top of the bottom tier (on the ledge).  Or...you could make 2D chicks and put them around the side of the cake.

 

It's a cute idea.  :-)

There was a cute hen cake in the latest Martha Stewart Cake and Cupcakes magazine.  I think it is still on the newsstand.

You can use a paisley pan to make a hen shape. You could make that 2d with mini ball chicks around the bottom. If you have those pans.

Thanks so much for the replies!!  I took at look at some ideas and I think I'll make a RKT chicken on top of a two tier round cake.  The chickies will go on the ledge and at the bottom and I'll put some flowers on it to make it more feminine and pretty.
