I'm thinking one of those doll cakes I've seen mentioned on other threads, or a microphone, or a guitar maybe. Any tips/ideas gratefully received. Tight budget alert!

I like the way you ladies think! Do they do Hannah Montana?

Yes, saw the HM cake today in Tesco.

asda will print things onto cakes, so you could bring in a picture Hannah Montana - perhaps photoshop it to incorporate your Dds name or her pic?

these are good if you want home made cake.

Or, make a plain sponge and get a picture printed in Tesco like they do for their photo cakes, but just the picture they will do for £1. Stick it on your cake.

ah
i am shite at baking
what you do, is get a plain cake from anywhere (asda do the plain white iced Victoria sponge thingamy in two sizes)
go on ebay
search for hannah montana cake and find people who will send you a real icing cake topper through the post.
follow simple instructions to put on top of plain cake
et voila.

bahhh, beaten by the lovely tortoise. grin

I love the fairy cake toppers, will be ordering some of them and doing cupcakes to take home I think, rather than a big cake.

Will ASDA do a photocake of someone probably heavily copyrighted by Disney? I couldn't ask this on the other parenting forum I visit as they have just --sold out-- been taken over by the big D!

Oh dear, my sarky strike through struck out.

If you really don't want to buy one, you could make a huge lovely cake, and stick different sweets on top plus a load of those HM choc lollies that M&S does. That woud look cool

look again at the ebay page; some are for fairy cakes and some are full size cake toppers. i just got one fo those and stuck it on an asda cake.
i had ben 10 and dinosaur parties to do this yr. you can incorporate a pic of dd too if you can be bothered like; they email you a design based on what you ask for, for you to approve before printing it. and you can order way in advance coz they keep for months.

pointys right there too of course

Well, my ASDA didn't bat an eye lid at printing off a Charlie and Lola cake...

Perhaps they might fear sue-tastic Disney more than the BBC?
