    oh so cool, that sounds like a neat cake too. you will have to get pics on here after you finish it.
    i don't know what website you went to but i like foodnetwork's website.
    i have a book on different cakes and styles but i couldn't put it on this site that would probably be some kind of copyright law i would be breaking. if you can't find anything ask your mom and i can email a fishbowl cake to you from the book i have. i think that is the coolest one in the book. best of luck to you [​IMG]

    I made a Hamburger cake for a fair one time and won 3 ribbons. It is alot of fun to do and not that hard. Good luck.

    you could make a cake and put green icing on it so it looks like grass and put some peeps on it, and make a chicken coop out of the gingerbread house kit but make the house half the size. you cant have any help from your parents??:eek:

    ive never made the cake just thought of the idea. [​IMG]

    wat is a snow ghost cake?

    i like the chicky idea too! my mom can watch me so i dont hurt myself but she cant help me. i have ta do it myself. she will be right here and help me with the recip and stuf but i have to decerate it all myself or it wouldnt be fair to the other kids at the fair. i made my dads birthday cake last year and it was good but i didnt like make it fancy or any thing. but i want this cake to be super cool so i get ribons! i dont care if it wins but i do want the ribons!
