Okay, my creative friends, I need to come up with a design for a 30th birthday and 5 year cancer remission cake. (It is for the same person) His wife said she wants something amazing. (Um okay, no pressure there!) She did mention the Livestrong yellow ribbon but she also wants his birthday in there somehow. Any suggestions?

hmmm...

well, first it is not a yellow ribbon -- it's a yellow wrist band:

second: be sure to see the home site for LIVESTRONG
http://www.livestrong.org/site/c.khLXK1PxHmF/b.2660611/k.BCED/Home.htm

third: the male version of the Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure is Team LIVESTRONG:

Note their logo:

perhaps a take on it -with a rephrased saying:

LivingSTRONG: 30 years
Living Cancer Free: 5 years

Is it possible to tie it to any sport he does? Walk? Run? Bike? Rowing? etc.?

Could do ball cap or jersey with logo and saying.

I did a wedding cake along those same lines -- Each tier represented something in their lives. First tier - he's a firefighter and owns a Ford dealership, second - she's a State Trooper with a K9, third his daughters wore pink & green at the wedding and he was just diagnosed with Lukemia, hence the Livestrong bracelet. I haven't posted it here yet so here's a pic.
