Stripes? One of the petal cakes or ribbon cakes that have been popular on here recently? Sounds like they really didn't give you much to go on.

I would ask client if there is a theme for the party or, (if no theme),what interests do the guests of honor have and go from there. icon_biggrin.gif

How about doing a "present" cake? You can use gender neutral colours like greens and yellows....hope that helps!

design wise, a present cake would be neutral enough and color wise I would say that a bright green(like neon) and a chocolate brown would be acceptable. See if you can find out any of their favorite colors and interests. I noticed also that someone else suggested stripes. If you could find out some of their favorite colors and find shades that would complement one or all of them you could do like a plaid design then a bow on top. You would have the colors they all liked, stripes or plaids would be very nuetral. I am tired so my design ideas are at a minimum. otherwise I could probably come up with plenty of ideas.

A cake covered in chocolate ganache with nuts, creme or fruit, etc. as decoration around the edges and Happy Birthday in a white or cream would be delicious and quite gender neutral I think icon_smile.gif

Thanks everyone for the ideas. The cake is for a coworker, and she is pretty picky. I know she is expecting something super elegant, thats juts how she is!

liznb2369, I think that Aeolytheis' idea would be a very nice and elegant look. You said there were three people who were celebrating a birthday and you gave no mention of allergies so I think that the other two would have no problems with that choice either. That is a cake that can be elegant.
