My dear friend lost her son after only 32 days. They will be celebrating his 3rd 'birthday' next month and she has asked me to do the cake. Unfortunately, she left the design up to me. (Too much pressure.)
So here I am, hoping that all you wonderful, creative cc people can give me some inspiration. Thanks!
Its a very sad occasion, so perhaps not go over the top on the decoration, maybe something simple, a white sheet cake, with some piping around the bottom and top. For ideas for the top decoration, it could be a small gold cross, little doves, white butterflies, do you think you should write his name on the cake, or would that be too upsetting?
You could off set the white cake slightly by airbrushing it with a bit of light blue so it looks like the sky, maybe some little fluffy clouds.
These are just a couple of suggestions, but like I said, probably better to make it simple and not over the top.
Hope this helps, good luck.
