I'm trying to come up with ideas for a Teacher Appreciation cake or appliques for cupcakes for my son's elementary school's Teacher Appreciation week.
I'm drawing a blank. Aside from an apple, what else would be really cute? Fondant kids holding hands around the bottom tier of a round cake with crayola crayons surrounding the second tier and a big thank-you banner on top?
Cupcake would be easier since most teachers don't have time to sit still long enough to eat a piece of cake with a fork. It's the perfect get it and go treat!
Anything school would be perfect: crayons, scissors, glue, kids, apples
Even something fall themed would be good!
This was a relatively easy cake. I made a sheetcake that said thank you in various different languages in the centers of gerbera daisies.
the cake is here http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1840951
the word in the center says thank you in Hebrew as I live in Israel and this was for teacher appreciation day (the last day of school )
you can do the same in cupcakes where each cupcake is a gerbera daisy and the center says thank you in a different language.
you can get a list of how to say thank you in different languages here at this link: http://users.elite.net/runner/jennifers/thankyou.htm
Enjoy and good luck!
A colleague of mine did the cutest cupcakes for school : each had a small apple, and a rectangle chocolate covered cookie or cracker to look like a chalk board, and she did the whole alphabet in upper/lower case: Aa, Bb, Cc, ect. she included a gumpaste 'chalk stick'. Darling.
I did an open book for teacher appreciation week. I then got a picture collage of all the teachers that the school had and printed an edible image for one side. On the other side of the book, I took a picture of the front of the school, made an edible image and put it on. It came out great.
Another year, I made a giant box of crayons, I think there is a tutorial on CC. That was a big hit too.
For my son's preschool teacher appreciation lunch I did a 2D shaped fondant covered replica of the schools logo with individual cupcakes below it with fondant letters spelling out "Thank You"
I did a two tiered one last year for the teachers in my kids school..They loved it!!..It is in my photos..sorry it won't let you post pic on the threads..some glitche...Check it out!
So many great ideas! I love the Hebrew idea because my kids go to a Jewish dayschool!
