for an incision. I got an order for torso shaped cake with an incision for open heart surgery. Incisions come in various colors depending on the stage of healing, so any suggestions on which "stage" should I pick? icon_rolleyes.gif


How about a blue/pink for a fresh incision? detective.gif (my son did the emoticon)

I'd pick a totally healed scar--to reduce the EEW factor and for good luck to the recipient (assuming it is for someone either going in for surgery, coming out of surgery or performing surgery).

The way I see it anyone who orders a cake and wants an incision on it is probably not worried about the EEW factor.

I'm sure you're right . . . but EEW!

I hope the cake is for a doctor rather than a patient...."Here, have a cake before you go have your open heart surgery"....LOL. Could you do a stitch for the incision rather than a gaping wound? icon_smile.gif

The cake is for the patient, who is either recovering or already has recovered. The surgery was a success, and patient is doing fine. The cake is from a group of his buddies.
