Ok - I was asked to replicate the cake for the clients triplets (this as her 1st sons). She said she understands that the names would be much smaller but I think it'll just look too "off" if I put 3 names under the cross.

So, does anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

ETA: It has 2 names now for 1 kid "Chase Matthew". She wants 3 full names for a total of 6 names on the cake. Example "Cole Tyler, Hunter Thomas, Owen Chase"

I dont think it will look bad with 3 names under the cross.

Another idea might be to make your board larger than the cake. Cover with fondant and apply the names to the board, so the names won't take away from the lovely cross. Cake boards can be used as an extention of your cake design. Good Luck!!

That's the route I would go. I would ask her if on the cake at the bottom if you could write "Our Sons" (or something similar) and then have the three names on the cake board.

A few ways.

1. Leave the cross alone on top, get a bigger board, and do "God Bless Cole Tyler, Hunter Thomas Owen Chase" on the board.

2. Leave the cross alone on top and do a plaque with "God Bless Cole Tyler, Hunter....."

3. Make the cross smaller on top and do "God Bless...." in smaller letters under the cross.

4. Make the cross smaller on top and do "God Bless Our Sons" (as cakegirl1973 said) under the cross (not split like it is now), and do small plaques on the bottom (3, one for each child)

The "God Bless" and the name on that cake are too big anyway. It needs a resizing even if it's just one name.
