I am doing a group birthday cake (for 6 people) ranging in ages 5 through 64.

I would like to come up with a clever saying with the sum of all the birthdays, ends up being something like 198 years.

Anyone have ideas for me?

Tomswife--I love it. now to practice my writing before the actual cake. Maybe I'll do it in fondant. I also have to write their names on the cake along with the saying.

maybe I'll keep the second part:

Here's to happiness and cheers

I bet it would be awesome to put that on a longer piece of fondant, made kind of wavy and you could paint it or write with an edible ink pen. Also you could print it on the computer, then lay it over your fondant and trace the font- then it indents and you can trace with icing from there! icon_smile.gif. I have the scrolly fondant piece on some of my cakes if it would make more sense to see it. icon_smile.gif. Glad you like it! Have a great afternoon! Back to 80's cupcake toppers!

Tomswife-I looked at your pictures and I see what you mean.

How far in advance would you make this? The cake is due next Saturday, Oct. 2nd. What did you use to stick it in the cake to make stand up?

I just used a thick piece of fondant, then put it on a cooling rack so it could get air on both sides, and just kind of bent it here and there, sticking small pieces of plastic wrap rolled up to hold the waves. It is dry in 24 hours. icon_smile.gif
