Last minute cake for my niece and nephew (twins). My sister is so unorganized! Anyway - making fondant tonight for the cake for Saturday. It will be a yin yang cake - one side dark blue with the transformer logo (silver) for the "dot". The other lavendar with a flower for the "dot" - probably pink.

I'm trying to decide what color for the board, and I want to put "Happy Birthday" on the board. I was thinking maybe light gray (silverish) - but that seems kind of boring. And what color to write the Happy Birthday? Any thoughts on the colors here?

Yeah I'd probably do either silver or white...

Maybe for the Happy Birthday you can center it to where the "Happy" is in front of the blue and make it blue, and the "Birthday" is in front of the lavender and make it pink or purple.... or even make it opposite (pink in front of the blue, and blue in front of the lavender).

Have fun!!!

This is what I would do cover the board half blue/lavendar and the writing in sliver and pink.
or if not enough time just a white board with the colors
hope this help!! good luck!

Never thought of 1/2 and 1/2 on the board - that might work! Thanks!

I think that's a great idea, too! Maybe you can even kinda continue the ying/yang curve on the board too so the lines match up with the cake....

Are you using foil, fondant, or contact paper?

(Her side looks pink - but it was really light lavender)
