Monty Python Celebration cakes

Hi all,

With it being my 21st birthday this year the fam have promised me a trip to Doune Castle AND a specially made Python cake... I said I wanted a Doune Castle cake, the "Camelot...Camelot...Camelot....its only a model" scene so we have the knights aswell :)

Was wonderin if anyone here has ever had a Python cake specially made for any occasion? Would love to see some pics...will post pics of mine, and Doune once ive been (which isnt for a few months yet!)

Can't wait to finally go there.....

Like CamelSpotter, I never had a Python cake either but here is a pic of one I found online once. (I think I found it on Flikr)

mrsCutout: Wow that must be great i am so happy for you!!!!!!!!Happy 21st!!!!!!!!!!

Holly: I'm a cake decorator, you can have an actual photo printed onto edible rice paper (any bakery should be able to do it, or, you can lay down a sheet of wax paper over the pic & trace it w/ the gel that comes in a tube. Then you just flip it over on the cake & you have a perfect outline to fill in with icing. I prefer using a star tip.

What are the chances! I was thinking of having a tiered cake of Doune castle etc but this is going to prove to be expensive, which i dont mind but my parents arent so keen! Id LOVE a grand Python cake to be proud of but may have to calm my ideas and have the picture cake you have mentioned....I love the design below (maybe without the tits! lol) but my particular favourite pic is this one so may have this on top and maybe the branded writing (as below) going round the edges....

That would look great. Now I just want to make a cake...I'll make my sister one for Monday, & since she doesn't get Monty Python, it'll just have to be my b-day cake. We always both get one anyways...we don't share well.

Happy 21st!

Here's one I found a while back. I've never had a Python cake myself, though!
I love the topic, as it actually happens to be my birthday today. :)
