My daughter's request for her birthday this year was for a Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew Cake. Huh? I was thinking it would be impossible!!!! However I drew up a sketch to try and mimic the cover style of her favorite book at the time and it turned out better than expected!
She liked the one about strawberry scented perfume and the beauty shop (it's the age!!!) so I incorporated some pink cosmetic/perfume bottles and did her age in the magnifying glass. I put a fondant image of her as part of the clue crew and dressed to match the cake with a "birthday sash" on as she was planning to wear one this year.
