3 cakes in one?!?! Help!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I need creative advice! 

 

We are having a family get together this Sunday because my "little" sister just came back from studying abroad for a year.  Additionally, it was my daughter's 7th birthday this week, and my parents anniversary. 

 

I am now given this crazy task of making a cake for this!  I have experience with fondant but I cannot figure out how to make this 3 in 1 cake.  We are a small crowd (half of who are on diets) so I don't need a large cake with 3 tiers.  Any suggestions?

 

My other idea is just do a pretty buttercream fondant cake but it won't really be personalized.

 

TIA!

Does it have to be one whole cake? Couldn't you make Three double layer 5' cakes? They would be small and have different themes.

Was thinking about this.  Not sure I can pull off three cakes by Sunday. I basically have tonight to bake them and only Saturday night to decorate.

May be you can make a single sheet cake and color it in three different colors each of their favorite colors and decorate each color with things/flowers which they like..

How about something that symbolizes your family instead of those specific events?

Is there something your whole family loves or does?  I agree with the above and don't rule out the cupcake possibility.  We had a small, half on a diet, birthday party two weeks ago and I made Smores cupcakes .  As it turned out, my niece on a diet ate 2, the birthday boy (man) ate 3 and my nephew told me how much he loved them 4x!  

 

How about pull-apart cupcakes iced to look like a whole pizza pie?   These are the kinds of things my wacky family likes so hope it helps!

How did you want to decorate them? You could go simple, base frosted and simple decorating.
