My friend that I grew up with is a supervisor in the housekeeping dept at a hospital. Next week is housekeeping appreciation week and she's ordered 5 dozen cupcakes. What the heck do I put on them? I thought some maybe fondant plaques that say thank you or awsome-but what else? She's not picky, but I thought something fitting the why they are getting them would be good.

I always think of the yellow folding sign that says "Caution - Wet Floor"

See I completely missed that idea! And btw these are for pick up Tues. morning. So any ideas I can get so I can work on the pieces Sunday would be awsome! I love this place!

If you make your pieces out of fondant, you can start on them whenever you want. I never worry about them getting too hard. You can still eat them when they are firm. A lot people pick off the decorations anyway.

a mop? (pretzel stick handle and fondant pushed thru a press to make the strings of a mop)
small yellow rubber gloves ( just cut out small mittens?)
shape a small piece of fondant to resemble a gray garbage bag and put a tie on it....
broom and dust pan....use the pretzel stick handle again and mold a piece of fondant at the bottom of the broom making ridges on it with a knife...
shape fondant into a bar of soap....put a small square by it for a cloth
