Need inspiration for an Australian themed cake.... - Page 2

post #16 of 46

I like the jandal idea

You could also do a surfboard, or BBQ (there's one in the planet cake book)

When I think of Aussie I think of the sun and surfing.

 

Also..what's a 'drop bear'

I believe a drop bear is a dangerous animal that drops out of a tree and onto the head of an unsuspecting person. Usually a tourist.

My father has suggested I make an Eski out of cake. I'm quite taken with this idea. The thongs are very well executed, but not exactly what I had in mind. The outdoor dunny is a great suggestion too.

What about a backyard with a cricket playing kangaroo.  I can't believe the number of overseas tourists who think that kangaroos just wander around the street like stray dogs.

 

What is a drop bear.  It's obviously not Australian.

 

Or a Blinky Bill dressed in an Aussie flag t.shirt.

An Esky !!   yep!   NOT a chilly bin, NOT a cooler......  a fair dinkum Aussie Esky and don't fill it with that crap beer we save for tourists either.

LOL - scrumdiddly.....   Aussie thong is the rubber kind.... although the plain old daggy ones are being phased out as the 'Havianna' brand takes hold.
We'd rather have the thin bit between our TOES than between our CHEEKS!! hahahahaha

Kangaroo is totally delish!

So many wonderful ideas. Sadly, I am no experienced pro when it comes to cake decorating, and I am doubting my ability to actually pull any of these off.

(Pull them off. Hahahahaha! Oops. Apologies. I just went all Calvin Cunnington for a moment).

I want one of those drop bears for next Christmas.  I am sure I could put it to good use here on the West Coast.

 

And YEP we eat kangaroos.  It's mainly people from overseas that kick up a stink about us eating one of the animals on our national emblem.  They reach plague proportions in some spots and you should hear the carry on (mainly from city folk who don't have to deal with the problems they can cause) when a cull is suggested.  It would be much more sensible to just eat them.

So what do kangaroos taste like?

(let me guess...chicken?)

 

BTW, I'm loving all the Aussie slang.  It's like reading an excerpt from a Crocodile Dundee movie!
