I have a request for a wedding shower. The couple is really into board games, Trivial Pursuit being their favorite. So I thought wouldn't it be cool to turn the subjects into things that make a marriage. Now I'm drawing a blank on some icons I can paint onto the board to represent these subjects.

For subs I thought love, friendship, humor, communication...and one other?

for love= hearts
friendship= two people holding hands,
humor= the laughing mask guy
communication= phone, notes
something else! =

Any help would be appreciated! I love the idea, I just want to work it out some more.

Trust= holding hands?

Good luck- super cute idea.... it would be cute if they designed a shower game after your cake with questions to go along with it!

What a fun cake - wish I was doing it!

Affection = hug sign (for texting) and/or lips sybolizing kiss
Loyalty = ring/wedding band

You could do a mandala in the middle - I think that would be apt.

Please post pics after!

what about a cake to symbolise celebrations - marriage/baby/anniversary/birthdays etc or a milestone to symbolise promotions/buying a house/anniversarys etc.
It's a great idea!

What about a rocking chair to symbolize growing old together/ future? Please post a link here so we can see when you are done. Good Luck!

Well, it turned out ok. Not great. I got the flu and was miserable. (yes, I wore a mask and scrubbed). The client loved it anyway and it tasted awesome (coconut cake with a pinapple filling). She was pleased and the couple loved it. That's what matters. Just not what I envisioned and I hate that.

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well. I had the stomach flu two weeks ago and couldn't put the finishing touches on my friend's baby shower cake. It is so disappointing when things don't turn out the same as what we plan.
