I was thinking of making a cake for my DD school. Maybe 1/4 sheet with a message something like "No one measures up to XYZ School" with a ruler on it. Then maybe some NFSC with rulers (I don't have alot of cutters and thought rectangles would be easy). Would that be okay? Any input welcome.

That sounds like a good idea. I just did one with the school's mascot on it and a thank you to the teachers and staff. I like your idea though! Do you have an apple cookie cutter? That is one of my favorites for teachers. Otherwise, I agree with the rectangle being easier to cut out.

That sounds absolutely clever and wonderful and they will love it.

(Now excuse me while I do a happy dance, because I'm not doing Teacher Appreciation Day this year. Last year I catered a lunch for 60 people with 3 pasta offerings and 3 sheet cakes ALL BY MYSELF, because parent involvement was next to nothing.)

Now have a BIG pat on the back for volunteering! The teachers really, really appreciate a little spoiling.

No apple cutter, but I've seen some cute ones in the galleries! Thank you for your responses.

I am also doing a teacher appreciation cake for our school this week. Our school is "Arrowwood" and I think I'm going to put "Arrowwood teachers hit the mark!" and perhaps a bullseye, but I don't know. I'm thinking of going very simple and just decorating a border and some buttercream flowers. I just finished a giant wedding cake and I have my son's birthday cake this weekend and frankly, I'm burned out.

Love your idea, it's super cute!

I'm doing teacher appreciation week too! I'm making an eight inch round (just for my daughter's teacher). I am going to cover in fondant and then put a ruler all the way around the bottom, put some books and apples on it, a chalkboard and the phrase "to teach is touch a life forever."

If you don't have an apple cutter, you can you a heart shape and alter the bottom a little. They will never know when baked. See my pictures of the cookie arrangement I did last year for teacher's appreciation.

That is a great idea! I love it when people think out of the box (I'm not capable of it) I baked my cookies already, but will definitely try this next time I'm needing an apple. Thanks for sharing.

the ones I did said, "If you can read this thank a TEACHER." usually was book themed and had an apple, etc.
