Ok, I was asked to do a cake for a coworker and friend who will be leaving the company tomorrow. It is kind of a cake that she has been wanting to leave for a long time (just not getting along with the boss who is also head of the company) and just finally got the opportunity to leave. I am trying to do something tasteful but also something kind of funny, but not offending the boss. So we came up with this idea. I made a birdcage out of fondant and painted it gold. I am going to make the cake look like a table draped with a cloth. i will put the birdcage on the table and then have the door open or on the ground (if I can't attach it) and then the bird sitting outside of the cage. I want a cute farewell phrase, but I can't think of anything to go with the scenario. Any suggstions? Also, should I put anything else on the table? I was going to put a card on there with the cute phrase. Any help will be much appreciated!!
Oh and I ran this by HR to make sure it wasn't offending and they said it was ok! I like my job..hehe.
"Congratulations on leaving the nest"
"we'll miss you when you leave the nest"
"spread your wings and fly"
none of these really say good-bye but kind of a farewell. maybe it will get the wheels turning for you.
how about?? "free as a bird, now spread your wings"
"flying the coup? Good luck!"
"Hope you soar at your new job"
you could always make a cat that looks like your boss sitting on the corner of the cake ready to eat the bird LOL
ha ha! That is funny about the cat!
Thanks everyone for your quick responses!
