I have 3 family members whose birthdays are on the same day and they are having a joint party and they want one cake. So my aunt Laura is crazy and turning 42 and Katelyn is turning 18 and Preston is turning one. I was thinking a three tiered cake with each tier being dedicated to one person. I just need 3 ideas for three different people but that all mesh together nicely. HELP!!! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

Well since you mentioned 3 family members and a crazy aunt...

The first thing I thought of was "see no birthday, hear no birthday, and speak no birthday" Maybe the three monkeys each to be each person.

Maybe I should put "Laura sees no evil" (yeah right lol)
Katelyn hears no evil
Preston speaks no evil.
That way they get why they are monkeys, but it still has their names on it. icon_rolleyes.gif
I love the creative juices that flow here on CC!!
