I was asked to make something special at work for one of the nuns birthdays. It only needs to be for about 12 people? She's not picky and easy to please. Now I'm drawing a complete blank on what to do?
If you want the religious aspect reflected in the cake, look through the First Communion gallery for some ideas.
Otherwise, I'd do an 8" round with a variety of flowers.
nice idea, how about a nice cupcake bouquet?? you can probably fit 12 cc in it.
I'm not sure about doing the religious aspect or not. I'm on the fence about that one. I was thinking of doing a bible with a rosary on it, but that doesn't sound very much like a birthday cake to me.
The cupcake bouquet is a good idea, that I could do easily enough.
I'm getting paid an hourly wage at work so I don't want to spend a ton of time on this since I still have to make all the desserts for the facility.
I think I'm going to lean towards an 8 inch round or the cupcake bouquet.
The big white floppy fying nun's hat would get a great laugh.
I would do a cake for the "woman" side of her, not the religious side for her birthday. Something like a teacup full of flowers or a bouquet with gardening gloves if she gardens. Most nuns have some sort of hobby outside of the church. Find out what her's is and go with it. LOL on the big "flying nun" type hat suggestion!
I threw this together fairly quickly, and the lady adored it. Perhaps just the flower garden?
I would pass on the religious stuff. She's a person, just like we are, so why throw her calling into it? I would also go with the cupcake bouquet. It would be just enough, and would let her know you see her as a person too, not just a nun.
I don't know any of her hobbies unfortunately.
I'm going to do something that's not dealing with the religious aspect for sure.
Of course, I'll have to one day make the flying nun hat for my mother since she loved that show.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
