That wouldn't go over too well with folks I know!
What about : Lena in a beautiful font, then Cake Designs in a smaller block font under that. Maybe angle the Lena just a little with the second line just a bit to the right.Lena Cake DesignCan't get this to do what I want! but I'm sure you get the idea. Good luck!
