I am at a heartbreaking loss as to what to do for this family. I have been asked to bake a cake to be donated to a post-funeral reception for a little girl that has bravely lost her battle with her cancer. I need a cake that will not only capture the spirit of this happy 7 year old girl, but be respectful of the grief the family and friends are currently experiencing with her departure. I am fairly new at decorating, and each new cake is a learning experience...
Does anyone have any ideas that as a novice, I can pull off? I would like to deliver a cake that does this little girl justice...
Thanks for your imput!!!
How sweet of you to do this for the family! I would do a pale yellow 2 or 3 tier cake with cascading daffodils (official flower). Or maybe you can have an edible image printed of the little girl and place it on top of a cake that is covered in daffodils? hope that helps
I love both of these ideas. I love that they would be simple... I don't want something grandeur above my skill level. piece_acake... I think yours would be beautiful, and what the family is looking for. I appreciate so much the idea!!
Oh Gawd! No edible image, how morbid, and no one will want to cut it or eat it! Awkward and horrible!
I agree, no edible image.
i ran with the simple theme... I think it turned out well (minus the bulges and horrible script...but I digress...) The family loved it, and the little girl's brothers kept taking people from the funeral down to the kitchen to show off their sister's cake. It was so heartbreaking and sweet all at the same time. I was so honored to be involved, but pray that is the LAST one of those I have to do.
i tried to post the attachment, but I guess you have to be smarter than this here thread post...??? If you go to my pics, it is the 3 tiered pink one with yellow roses.
she must have a special thing that she liked as most kids do. I did this cake for my special friend who passed from cancer as well. her favorite colors are pink and orange and she loved lady bugs
psurrette, she did it already. It's in her photos. Your cake is pretty.
thank you... psurrette, I love your lady bug cake... I wanted to go the princess theme...but I didn't want it to be like a birthday cake that she will not be having. I didn't need emotional breakdowns for my first "big" cake. I was having enough of my own getting through that delivery.
