My brain is shot after a weekend of cakes so I need some help coming up with an idea. I have to do a cake for a church walk/bazaar. The theme is "Life is a Gift" / birthday cake theme. It can be any size/shape/color, etc. There will be other cakes there so I'd like mine to stand out yet be easy for them to cut and serve at the end of the event.

I am blank. I was thinking maybe a gift box?? But then how does "Life" tie into that?? Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much!

maybe you could cover it in fondant and paint different scenes on the sides before adding the ''ribbon and bow'' part?

that sounds cool, a raised tree, kinda 3d ish but flat against the cake hope that makes sense- with fondant gift boxes hanging from it.

or if not that, how bout a mother cradling her child sillouette ?
