I did a smiling sunflower as a thank you - check out my pics.

I did this cake for my kids preschool. I found it here on cake central, unfortunately I don't remember who did it.

How about an arrangement of cake pops in a nice flower pot with tissue paper and ribbon? Easy single serve treats for all of the employees...

Trace a child's handprint and cover the cake in that along with a cute saying?? Or maybe gumpaste hand prints on a cupcake? I know they make little hand shaped cookie cutters.

Just a thought...good luck!

Maybe do the baby blocks with different images made of fondant on each side of each block: a crayon, an apple, a handprint, a few different alphabets, but put Thank on one block and You on another block

I was a pre-school teacher for 13 years and I think it would be nice if you did handprints and footprints with fondant or gumpaste and write down the names of the staff members. and if they have a school logo you can put it on top.
good luck

I think crayon cakes are cute.

That is great to hear! I have to switch daycares since my son is going to kindergarten, so I am working on a cake for the daycare teachers. I am making a handprint cake. I took my kids' handprints in paint and am getting edible images made and putting them all over the cake. Then I am writing the names of all the teachers, since they have had them all (been there since they were babies). Hope they like it! icon_smile.gif
