Hi! I've been asked to use my imagination and make a birthday cake for a landscaper! I'm thinking maybe a lawn and mower???? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I saw a fun cake out on google images of a girl sliding on the lawn, being pulled by a run away mower. HAha!

I made a landscape cake once and I wish I had taken a picture.....I used fondant to make gray bricks and I lined them up like edging and I put little fondant rocks inside the rockbed and I took a couple of plastic trees and put them in the rockbed and then there was a hole that appeared like I had dug the hole for another tree and I filled it with the chocolate part of the oreos crushed up and I put a pile of oreos like dirt on the side of the hole and I made a fondant shovel. On the outside of the bricks was grass and I made a lawn mower out of gum paste so I could get the handle of the mower to stand firm. Hope you can visualize it. It was a huge hit.

I found the cake mmumsie saw on google images and can incorporate your cake in that also cabas10. Both are wonderful ideas. I'm working on daffodils this afternoon for course 2 and hoping to put them on a birthday cake for a lady my daughter works with.

I made this for my father-in-law, he loved it! Chocolate cake, peanutbutter buttercream and crushed oreos.

Oh my gosh - that is awesome Serious Cakes! Crushed oreos is a fantastic idea. Your trees are outstanding! Oh, I have to comment on your videos - just LOVE them.
