Hi all,

I've just been asked to make a cake that is has a mixed holiday theme. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Reason for this crazy request you ask? Well, my office wil be laid off in mid Oct. and we are throwing a last big horrah and they asked me to make a cake w/ all the different holidays wishing everyone "Good Luck".

I would be making a sheet cake as it will be easier to carry to work on the train and so forth.

Could anyone provide some ideas about how to pull this all together?? I am stumped.

Thanks in advance!! icon_smile.gif

Considering we don't *do* Thanksgiving over here - and Halloween is a tad popular icon_confused.gif -

What about a cake in Christmas colours - with accents deplicting Halloween and TG..

Sorry, thats all i can think of - icon_redface.gif

What about a cake decorated with fall colors (icing and border) and snowflake and black cat decorations?

or blue with white snowflakes and a candycorn and fall leaf border...

veronica720 - I know hehe- this is very challenging LOL . Since we will not be celebrating the holidays as we normally would they wanted to throw them all together. ARG!!

How 'bout "The Nightmare Before Christmas"? Jack Skellington, etc. I'm not sure how to tie Thanksgiving in, but Halloween and Christmas would be covered!

It also seems morbidly fitting, considering the occasion...

I agree and for TG just add a turkey and fall leaves on a kitchen table maybe in a corner

Bypass all those holidays and go straight for New Year's Eve ... Father Time and the New Year's baby - representing the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next.
Good luck to all in finding new employment opportunities!!

I was thinking of a square cake and make it look like a picture cube- have a holiday them on each of the sides and do something funky fun for the top (combine all holidays). For the 4th side you could do New Years if you wanted. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

Oh I really like the cube thing, that would be so cool. Maybe just being a square wouldn't make it to much of a pain to carry on the train.
