I'm making a cake for a friend. She just wants something "simple". It needs to incorporate her husband graduating from college, her mother-in-law getting some "Outstanding Alumni" award, and her father-in-law's 60th birthday. Yup, all of that. Still trying to wrap my head around that!! LOL. Any ideas/suggestions on how to incorporate that would be appreciated. Oh, it will be for a 9x13 sheet cake. Thanks!!

i was going to suggest 3 cakes, but after you said sheet cake I remebered seeing this here recently. maybe something like this. or if you're really creative, there's a newspaper cake in the Graduation gallery (around p.4) that could announce all the events

A simple but elegant idea to incorporate all is to do a photo cake. Put a photo cake, with a border, around each recipient, one in each corner or off-set, perhaps a size 4x5 or a 5x5". You could build up the icing under the photo, to give the overall cake more height, raise up the pix a bit. It would look nice, give each person a "moment to call their own", and fit all on one big cake.

That's my2-cents for whatever its worth! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the ideas! I love the idea of the newspaper. I don't have a way/know how to do the edible picture/images, but I think I can figure something out! Thanks so much!
