Multiple Occasion Cake-Help!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
icon_eek.gif I just got a call from someone that insists on a sheet cake which is supposed to include 2 birthdays and an anniversary, with a photo. The photo is no problem but I can't come up with any ideas on how to incorporate the three occasions and not have it looks too busy!! Any suggestions?

hi MrsMissey and welcome to CakeCentral.com! icon_biggrin.gif

you could make the sheetcake look like a quilt
Each "patchwork" is for a different occasion?

You could even pipe some "stitching" to make it look authentic

Here are some links to some other "quilt" cakes that might help:

A couple of questions...are they all female or male, that would help keep the design consistent like with flowers or just swirls.

You could go with a generic saying like "Congratulations and many more" That could be for both B-day and Anniv.

Is the photo of all 3 people, if it is that's great just add the picture, but if its not then it's going to look like just the people/person in the picture are being honored?

I hope I've helped, i'll keep on thinking.

Thanks for the great ideas!! I have since found out that the guy likes Harley motorcycles and the girl likes tweety..what a combination! Anyway, here is what I ended up doing...for anyone who may be in the same situation...I made a Harley magazine cover, scanned and cropped their picture in the shape of a heart, put tweety bird on a Harley and added Happy Anniversary as a headline, and Happy Birthday in another. Whew!!

Wow! That was fast! I usually think about cakes and draw up designs for days before I actually make the cake. icon_eek.gif

icon_rolleyes.gif ...I wasn't given much notice. They need to pick this up tonight! I am still making some last minute changes before I actually put it together! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
