Designing a cake for an 18 male who just signed up for the Navy. It's missing something but I don't know what. The flag will be draped over that back corner. Navy insignia and hat will be made out of GP. Anchors also.

Wow, that is ambitious. I don't have any suggestions exept for a nice caption. I think it is such a noble thing to want to serve in the military. Maybe a line from a poem. The last is from the Naval Hymn.

"Hail to the brave, courageous and strong
Who ply the oceans, rivers and bays told in story and song"


"On seven seas we learn
Navy's stern call:
Faith, Courage, Service true, with
Honor, Over Honor, Over All."
