My bff asked me to do a cake for a funeral wednesday. A very close family friend had a heartattack last night at 57yrs old and died. She very upset of course so she asked me I told her no problem she said she would leave it up to me on how to make it look.

Now I dont want to do an overdone cake for a funeral.
Let me know what you all think of this idea.

I am going to decorate it nice and simple Make it look like the cake in the link below minus the hotpink bow and put a single edible red rose on a stem ontop and she is going to have a card filled out ...
What do you think? This is the 1st time I have been asked to do one for a funeral and I dont want to overdo it.

I've made cakes for funerals before.
Usually I make a very nice generic, no theme round.
Here is a b'day cakes, similar to one of the funeral I have made:

My feeling about a cake for this event is it's for the living. They need something pretty, nice to take there mind off the reasone for the event, even if only for a minutes or two.;

I usually do a sheet cake, mark it off into 2" squares using a small shell border, and pipe a small rosebud or forget-me-not in the center of each piece. It makes a nice simple presentation and is easy to cut and serve.

I just do a simple cake usually chocolate because everyone likes chocolate. Keep it very simple.
