Any good ideas for a little saying or something for a cake on board sign?

Thanks!

Whatever you do, keep it large enough to read from a distance...I heard of one guy who said the only time anyone ever hit him when he had a cake in the car was when they were trying to get close enough to read the sign that said "cake in transport." I'd just put something indicating that you might be driving slow because there's a cake being transported, or just put on your flashers if you're driving really slow. I don't use a sign because I think that most people are going to drive the way they drive regardless of what othe people are carrying in their cars! Just watch out for the idiots and drive carefully!

Ya, I don't expect others to drive any better, but at least they will know why I am taking that "corner" a little slower than normal!!!

I saw a local bakery that had magnetic signs on the back of their van. One said," We apologize for our speed", and the other said, "Wedding cake delivery in progress." The funny thing was, they were driving faster than everyone else! Oh well.

You could just get one of the baby ones, cross it off with marker and write "cake" that would be funny! icon_smile.gif

I just ordered some magnetic sheets ($7 for 24" x 12") for another purpose in the house and am going to make some 3" strips out of the leftovers to put on the back of my car. They will just read "CAKE DELIVERY". Short but to the point, don't you think.

I know you can go to VistaPrint.com and order either a small or large one for pretty cheap.

I had one made thru a local sign shop and it was under $25. I wanted it to be big, but not TOO big, and bright enough to get noticed. I am including a picture of it if someone is interested in knowing what it looks like.

I actually got to use it this weekend delivering a wedding cake (also posted).

You can order one from www.earlenescakes.com or if you are going to ICES convention, I purchased one from there.

Here's a note--if you are not legal (trying to stay under the radar), I wouldn't recommend putting it on your vehicle.

I love the sign idea of "Cake delivery" I take the corners sometimes so slowly and I know it drives other bonkers........
