Best friend's Breast Cancer Cake

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm not going to go into a ton of details because I don't want to depress anyone but here's the situation. I have 2 best friends. One of them died from leukemia 3 years ago and the other was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 months ago. We're only 26...go figure... Well, my best friend is going through Chemo and is having a horrible time keeping up with the medical bills so one of her friends is throwing her a huge benefit. So I knew the question was coimng... can I do the cake? LOL So I need some fantastic ideas. I don't want to do an all about breast cancer cake...I want to somehow work my friend's spunky attitude into it...something modern looking. Any and all ideas are welcome...pics too if you can find anything...thanks!

Maybe this cake I did will give you an idea? I was in a similar boat, and this is what I came up with. Good luck and prayers to your friend.

Is the cake being served at the event? Personally, what I'd do is a simple sheet cake to feed everyone PLUS a showcase piece (2 tier w/fun design?) to be raffled during the benefit.
This way you're letting others know what your cakes taste like and what kind of incredible decorating you do plus you're adding to the amount raised for your friend.

Don't know about your friend, but I'm speaking from my personal (and very recent) experience.

I was diagnosed on Good Friday, had a mastectomy in May. I'm a total advocate (nut) for breast cancer awareness now--and anything pink ribbon is what I would want!

I have a very cute pink ribbon pin that is shaped like a daisy. The "feet" of the ribbon are towards the inside and the loops on the outside--all joined. Does this make sense? It would be adorable on a round cake. Could put a round on top of another cake to feed more if you needed to.

Ebay also has the pink ribbon sprinkles that are a combination of light and dark pink. You could sprinkle them on the borders....

Spinning Leaf has a Oreo cookie mold that has the pink ribbon. Once you put pink in for the ribbon, white in for the covering and the oreo, you get a freekin' fantastic tasting and adorable cookie!

OR....a friend sent me the most magnificient chocolate covered strawberry arrangement. The choc s'berries were drizzled in shades of pink and some had ribbons on them. Those would be gorgeous on a cake.

Your friend will be touched by your thoughtfulness. Thank you for that.

Thank you everyone. I really got some great ideas. I'm still torn between the torso cake and a 2-3 tier cake with the pink cancer ribbon and some kind of funky design to it. I may just do both icon_smile.gif .... We are having a bunch of raffles at the fundraiser. Maybe one of my cakes could be a raffle. Well, at least I have until October 4th to figure it out. Thanks ladies!!!

If your friend is spunky maybe you'll find inspiration from this. It's a bumper magnet that I'm going to give my 'survivor' mom. She's got a great sense of humor and this is a worthwhile organization as well. Best of luck. Great project.

I don't know if this will help with ideas, but I did this one for a wedding. The bride requested a breast cancer theme cake.

What about using diamantes to make up the pink ribbon design? Add a bit of bling to it!
Wishing your friend all the best for her recovery.
