    I have a family member who will turn 90 next month and we're planning a big blow-out! Suggestions for an over the top cake? She likes just about anything but peanut butter. Loves york peppermint patties and daisies... I'd really like something creative that could act as a focal point for the party. Ideas?

    Fun, I love occasion projects! And at that age she's definitely earned herself some fantastic cake... :p I can't stay away from chocolate so I'd probably opt for something gooey and decadent, like this: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes...oke-cake/b7997924-28e4-486f-8266-11e5e6e6c4cf - I love the mint leaf touch, and if you're looking to make it even more spectacular you could always make some icing daisies to sprinkle around the base, like a bit muddy daisy-filled garden, that is also deliciously edible :p I'm a bit heavy-handed for delicate decorations so I'd probably cheat and use these: http://www.cakecraftshop.co.uk/shop/products/id/csf104.htm ;)
    Hope this helped with some ideas, and you all have a fantastic day!

    I recently posted a thread for an unusual birthday cake and got a response for a peanut butter and jelly cake...sounding really interesting.
