Hi all,
I have a customer who wants a cake made for her best friend, and all she told me was that it should feed 12 people and be in the colors white, purple, and emerald green. She also said to maybe add a friendship quote. Any ideas??? I'm stumped. I thought I knew what I was going to do until I started getting ready to make the cake, but now I'm not so sure. Would a heart shaped cake be good for a best friend or is that too much of a romantic type thing? Also, what kind of design could I do that is quick and easy in those colors other than roses? Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Oh, she also wants dragonflies on it too.

with dragon flies, i think of lily pads, or reeds. so maybe something like that, green plants, purple dragon flies, white fondant/ bc base. and that would work fine on a round, or heart.
no idea about quotes, but i imagine a search on google would bring some up icon_smile.gif

I don't know how you feel about bible quotes but one of my favorites is proverbs 18:24 "a man of many companions may come to ruin but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother"

A few of my favorite friend quotes:

Best friends are the siblings God forgot to give us

"It is by chance we met . . . by choice we became friends."

"Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light."
~Helen Keller~

"A friend is someone who knows all about you... and loves you anyway."

She might love the heart shaped idea, but might not. Could you ask her? A square shape might be fun in the quest for something different? The square idea might fit nicely with the reeds, lilly pad, dragonfly scene.

I think the people at cc rock, there is nothing you can ask for that someone here can't help with. The quotes you all have given the op are great! I'm in awe of the people here.

here's some quotes

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
- Anais Nin

"Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you."
- Elbert Hubard

"What is a friend? A single soul in two bodies."
- Aristotle

I have been looking all over for a cake on here that someone did. It's white with black dragonflies brush embroidered (i think)... it's beautiful, but i can't find it. Maybe another CCer knows what I am talking about and will post a link.

good luck!

I would be very wary of putting a bible quote, or any quote with God in it, on a customer's cake, unless they ask for it specifically! While it, and all the other quotes given, is beautiful, not everybody is Christian, or even religious for that matter!

I totally agree with this. When in doubt, check with your client.
