HELP! We just got a new youth pastor at our church. He and his wife are from clear across the country, they know no one and they have no family here. I don't know anything about her except that she is a pastors wife. I found out today that her birthday is THIS Wednesday. I would like to make her a cake so that her first birthday doesn't completely suck, since she is all alone here.

Any cute ideas? I am looking for something clever and catchy. I don't know her colors or anything. Any ideas?

That's so sweet of you! The thought that initially crossed my mind was just to integrate some spring-type decorations in ... flowers, butterflies, etc. Here's a picture of the kind of decorations that I was thinking of.

Or maybe you could make a cake in the shape of Idaho, and make it a 'welcome to Idaho' and a 'happy birthday' cake!

I like the springtime theme... flowers and butterflies but what about a teapot or basket of flowers? I think that just the gesture in itself is so sweet that she will love and appreciate anything you bring her!

Here's one idea. It's just an 8x4 w/5"er on top.

You could always do a cross cake and add cascading flowers to the cross to give it a spring time look and feel to it. It is very sweet of you to think of her and make a cake! thumbs_up.gif

They are all good ideas. I really want some clever saying... My dh said to make a beehive with flying bees and write on the cake board, "We heard the buzz that it's your birthday!"

I have som left over orchids from a wedding, they are white but I could paint them. What color scheme would you use?

Something clever...the beehive idea is good plus it is springy. You could do a round cake and do grapevines and grape clusters and write "We heard through the grapevine that is it your birthday!" Too cheesy?

Love the grape cluster idea! Any more "cheesy" ideas? I actually think they are cute.

What about a wedge of cheese with a little mouse on it and have it say, "a little mouse told me it's your birthday" Plus that would be fast and easy.

I like the cheese and mouse idea. I had thought you could also do a bunch of flowers and have some color flow birds and say a little birdie told me - kinda cute! icon_biggrin.gif
