A good friend of mine, who happens to be a co-worker - is moving back to Missouri (from CA). We are throwing a department "going away" party for her on the 21st of this month. Since I am the "cake maker" at work, I have been given the job of making her cake - except for the life of me I can't come up with any ideas on how I should decorate it.

I tried looking in the gallery - but can't seem to find anything.
Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks in advance

How about 2 cakes touching - one the shape of California and one of Missouri, and write something about wishing you were closer, blah, blah, blah....

This is going all out but not real creative since I'm tired and groggy... but maybe on the left side of the cake an outline or filled in, or Cali, and on the right side the same, but of Missouri, and just a simple good luck. Simple but gets the point across. Or do you want something more creative?

Well, with the way I feel right now ( tired as well - heh) - it does not have to be all super creative. Just something basic that gets the point across.

Thanks for your ideas!

I like your idea. I hope my response didn't come out weird! I think I may do a sheet cake with both states on it...with some wording, blah blah blah.

thanks again!

This is not my cake, but it's been in my favorites for a while because I thought it was really cute. Wish I remembered where I found it...

Nothing came out wierd. I'm a Missouri boy, that's the first thing that came to mind.

How about an airplane with a sign to indicate the destination? Or suitcases?
