Anyone have any ideas for a "get well" cake?
This is for a teenage boy, who is a cancer patient, and his family. Nothing too serious, I just want to make him a small, cute, cake to let him and his family know we are thinking of them.
You could do a band-aid....
I have a really cute cake saved in my faves - soup and cracker get well cake. Here it is:
I also like cupcake or cookie bouquets.
Or find out what he likes and make a cake related to that - take everyone's mind off the illness....
I agree - find out what he likes, sports or video games.
Since boys don't like frilly stuff, you might try surprising him and his family with a rainbow colored cake underneath all that frosting. Here's a link to a great pictorial on making a rainbow cake. I actually used this for the bottom 14" layer of a 3 tier cake made for a relative's memorial service. It allowed me to maintain decorum with the overall cake appearance, yet surprise the adults and kids and get their mind off the funeral for a few moments when they saw the inside of the cake.
By the way, welcome to the forum. I hope we can assist you in coming up with the perfect cake for this young man and his family.
I agree. Find out what he likes and do something related to that. Make it special and all about him. I did a welcome home cake for a friend's 3 year old son who had cancer. He loved The Incredibles, so I did a simple chocolate cake with The Incredibles symbol on top. So simple, but he loved it. Made him feel special, not a cancer patient. Of course, he was only 3!!!!
I love both of these cakes. Soup and crackers, who doesn,t love that when you are sick.
What about a big 70's style smiley face cake?
Thank you for all the awesome replys! I still don't know what I am going to do. I like the soup and crackers cake, that is very cute! I am going to ask my husband what he thinks, because he knows the family much better than I, maybe he will know what he likes.
Thanks again everyone!
