Monday is my first day at a new job, I've been a stay at home mom for the last 5 years and am now getting back in the work field. The job is for legal assistant at a small firm and they were nice enough to take a chance on me without having the experience most people want. I would like to make a great first impression and make a nice cake or cupcakes. I'm planning on using fondant, what do you think would be a nice idea??

I think it would be really cool to do a book, either open or closed, and put a gavel on top - maybe a pair of glasses? I'm not the best at being creative when it comes to a theme like this so that's all I got! lol

I have been working in an office environment for fifteen years. If you want an honest opinion, I think maybe you shouldn't do that on your first day. I think it will be something nice for Friday, when the office will likely be more casual. You will be meeting everyone and doing your new employee paperwork. If you do get around to doing some actual work, you will likely be working with someone who will be training you. Bringing cupcakes will be a distraction for everyone including you. At this point, you may not even know if they have a central location to put cupcakes or a cake. And I would do cupcakes as that will create less mess. I would do something pretty simple and plain. And then as you get to know people, make things a little more suited to people's taste, particularly your boss's.

Good luck on your first day! Post a picture of whatever you do whenever you do it!

Thanks for the tips and advice, After reading your message Redlotusninagrl, I decided to wait until Friday and have it as more of a "Thank you for being patient while training me" kinda thing. So thank you all again for the help!! icon_biggrin.gif

I was thinking along the same lines as Redlotusninjagrl, glad she posted, and that you found it good advice. Give yourself some time to settle in, and your co-workers a chance to know you as well. Good luck with the new job.
