I am making a sheet cake for my grandmas 80th birthday on Saturday. I am wondering if anyone reading this might know of a nice looking sheet cake for an her. I am not interested in using any fondant, just buttercream. Thanks for any ideas!!!

Try searching the gallery for "sheet cake" and see what comes up. You're a better judge of what your grandmother will like than any of us, but that will give you some ideas to look at.

most of the time , i pipe flowers using buttercream... that is the flower for that month.... especially for women of all ages.. also, if your grandmother likes to work in her flowers etc... you could pipe a garden of flowers... hth

What are you grandmother's likes? My mom is 92 and she wanted lavender roses on her cake. How about a photo of her as a girl? You can order an edible image or just laminate a photo, lay it on the cake and add border with flowers around it. Let us see what you come up with.

Check out Indydebi's album. She has lots of pretty all buttercream sheet cake pictures.

What's her favorite color? Does she have a favorite author or poem or something? Does she/Did she have any particular hobbies? Just a few ideas....

She'll love it, because she'll be thrilled you made it. Be sure to post a photo!

thanks you guys for all of your ideas. I think I am going to make something very simple for her since it will be eaten at the family reunion and that means it will be sitting out all day with lots of little "fingers" running by! This is going to be a surprise cake for her, so I'm sure she will love it regardless!
