How long has she been with the company?
Maybe make something similar to a small wedding cake.
Would you be able to find a pic of her from when she started at the company?
You could out a then and now pic on the cake.

I first met her way back in 1983 I had just gotten out of college and was starting my first job at the local hospital-we're both nurses.

She was a "seasoned" nurse, I a newbie and she kind of took me under her wing and helped me get on my feet while establishing some self-confidence.

She's a wonderful lady, and I will miss her alot.
we've been through some rough times and tight spaces together.

I would like a very special cake.

are you looking for something a bit trindy looking or classic. Big like a wedding cake or smaller.

Yes, something large, maybe tiered or stacked like a wedding cake.

and something classy and elegant like her.

I just love that cake pic sheilaattaway... all the different colors in pastel shades ... the scroll work is pretty .. to me, the scroll work on the ribbon is a bit much, but the cake itself I just love!
