I'm a novice cake decorator who hasn't done a cake in about 3 months due to serious life issues that have come up. I had a botched nerve block for my surgery to replace my knee on Dec 1, and came home w/ a paralyzed leg. I can walk now, even if my balance is still a little off. But, I am pretty sure I can do a cake.

My mother is turning 90 yrs old, and I'm having a party for her. I just can't decide what type of cake to make for her! Shall I do a sheet cake? A sheet cake w/ a smaller second layer on top? Or a regular tier cake? I'm thinking I'll have about 30-35 people. I just can't decide what to do..

Glad to hear your doing better!

Personally, I think a small tiered cake is more special but I've also seen some beautiful sheet cakes here on CC. I find browsing the galleries here sparks inspiration when I don't know what to do.

Have you thought about a hatbox cake? She might like something vintage. With the lid propped up and some lace and flowers spilling out of it. Maybe a tiny hatbox sitting on top of a pillow shaped cake?

Glad to hear your doing better too!
