I have a customer who ordered a 1/2 sheet cake and wants it decorated for babies who have not been born yet. Some of her church members are getting together to pray for babies (and moms) so that they may be born healthy. Since no one knows the babies or moms personally, she wants to keep the colors unisex. The only wording she wants on the cake is "Thank you for praying for us." I like doing sheet cakes and freehand work, so if you can suggest a way for me to decorate this cake I'd really appreciate it!

Twice a year we do this at our church, only we have an actual baby shower for all the women in the church that are pregnant. "experienced" moms come and bring one gift for a pregnant mom. The pregnant mom picks a gift from the gift table and the "experienced" mom becomes the "new" moms prayer partner. the experienced mom prays for the new mom and the unborn baby and calls to check on them and answer any questions etc. It is a really wonderful experience.

I have done the cake the last 2 times and it is really hard to come up with a theme or cake - the first one I did was a baby block cake with neutral colors of yellow, green, blue and pink and the second cake I did, i did duckies with a green/blue color.

So, maybe do a sheet cake with some ducks on it.

I hope my rambling helps!! haha

I really like to do ones that look like quilts. You could use any colors you wanted.

I made a baby shower cake and mad a fondant baby laying on his belly up on knees, asleep with his little piggies sticking out of the gown and put him on top of a fondant blanket. You could just make three little babies: one pink, blue, yellow, and write Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I sanctified you. When I have lots to write, I put it around the sides of the cake.

Thanks so much for all the ideas. I have to make this cake Friday. I think I may steal an idea from each of you. I know that she wanted just "Thank you for praying for us," but I love the idea of putting the verse from Jeremiah around the sides of the cake.

Thanks so much. Will post when it's done!

Here is a couple of ideas that I did for some showers....... You can change the colors anyway you want .....

This one I had a near disaster..... the "hood" collapsed and screwed up the whole end of the cake....... Therefore, the crooked lettering
