I need to make a cake for a lady who is turning forty. She cleans offices for a living. The lady who ordered the cake said maybe something with a mop. I figured some cleaning equipment like a mop and bucket, a broom and dust pan, spray cleaner and cleaning rags. I just don't know what to write for a caption. Any ideas?

Wow, back when I was a cleaning lady I would have hated to have a birthday cake that had the tools of my trade on it...but to each her own. I would have wanted something girly that reminded me I had a life other than my job.

I have to agree with TexasRose, but I know you should go with what the customer is ordering. A couple ideas:

Include a glass slipper with the mop and write something like, "To a real-life Cinderella. Happy Birthday!"

OR

"It's time to drop the mop and soak up some suds! Happy Birthday!"

I also agree with TexasRose, I was thinking a french maid outfit on a torso cake!

I like the idea of the slipper!
