I am doing a coffin cake for a customer. Her husband is turning 40. Basically there is going to be a coffin with a spray of roses on top. I need a funny turning 40 quote.. something to go along with the coffin. I am drawing a blank! icon_eek.gif

You could use one from one of the cakes featured on Cake Wrecks a few weeks ago. ''You'll be dead before you know it.''



Just kidding. I keep looking for an excuse to write that on someone's cake. Got nothin'.

I've always liked "Here lies your youth. RIP." If I ever do an over-the-hill cake, I'm using that. Wish I knew of some others for you.

'it's better to be over the hill than buried under it'
'forty's not old.... if you're a tree'

How about putting a grim reaper next to it and saying "I'm only here for the cake...I promise!"

Hi there...

Here are a couple of quotes I have used in the past.... I never did post a pic for them because I forgot to take pics...

1. "Hurry up and blow out the stinking candles so I can eat cake!"

2. "Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit, look who's 40!"

Here's one more in ref to the economy probs......bless America.........

"Where's my 40ish bailout?"

Hope you find a good quote your looking for........
