We will be attending a Celebration of Life for a 16 yr old friend of my son that passed away on Valentine Day after a 2 year battle with cancer. They are asking that everyone bring a dish. I am tossing around the idea of also bringing a cake but am having a hard time with a design for the cake. The Celebration is being held at a local church. My son knew him through weekly Yu-gi-oh! tournaments where they have both been playing for a few years. Any suggestions or ideas for a cake?

Thanks for any suggestions

Debbie

Since you are donating, not selling, the cake you can make a Yu-gi-oh cake in his honor. If he loved it and it is your memory then it should work well. So very sad but a life well lived needs to be remembered well.

Thank you. My son picked out a YuGiOh! card named "Beckoning Light" that I was thinking of using. I've also pulled up pictures of balloon releases that I thought would work. Just trying to figure out what to do with the card if I use it - was thinking of substituting "In Loving Memory" or "Celebrating the Life of" with his name or something at the bottom where the cards powers are usually listed.

Any other suggestions - thoughts?

Thanks,
Debbie

That sounds beautiful to me!

I think the Yu Gi Oh is a great idea...a replica of something he liked.

And it wouldn't have to be too elaborate to make an impact. I don't know what that particular looks like, but it sound pretty neat.

Maybe a cake with photos of him all around the cake and then a yu-gi-oh topper.

Thanks everyone. I'll be checking back on ideas and running everything by my son. I'll let everyone know what we come up with.
