hi guys i would like to make a cake for nursery staff who have looked after my son who will be leaving to go to 'big' school soon
ive never tried a cake the shape of a book so would like to do this and perhaps add a quotation about children
but im a little stuck on a theme of some kind, something unusual. any ideas?
thought about scrapping the whole book, childrens quotation thing but keep coming back to it
any help would be appreciated
Perhaps a Dr Seuss cake... Oh, the places you'll go!
You could do a book with a fairytale look or one with nursery rhymes on it. Wilton makes a book pan -- you can find it at Michael's/ Hobby Lobby/ Jo-Ann's (use a coupon for any of those) or your local cake store (they might even rent them.)
Look in the galleries. There is an entire album for book cakes. Here are a few more pics for you."
This one has lots of characters on it. Very cute:
Here are a few quotes you might like:
"While we try to teach our children all about life, Our children teach us what life is all about." ~ Angela Schwindt
"Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see." ~ John W. Whitehead
"The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn." ~ John Lubbock
There is a Unity Poem by By Ray A. Lingenfelter it talks about teacher and parents working together. It's really nice. I used it last year for the teachers and they loved it.
If you look at my pictures there is a book with kids on 1 side and this poem on the other.
thanks for all of your input guys, great ideas and great cake pics! jus wish i was that good!!
i decided to put the nurserys logo on the front and a small verse,
ive attached a pic of the finished cake, not v pleased with the free hand writing,little wobbly but my first try so will keep practicing
Very pretty! The logo was a great idea and the quote is perfect.
