I have been asked to make a leaving cake for someone leaving my work but the party is also to welcome 2 new members of staff. Have any of you put these 2 things together on 1 cake?

How about an "Aloha" theme, since it means both hello and goodbye? icon_smile.gif

The person leaving has he/she been their a long time. I would make two cakes the same size (small cake is fine- same flavor or different)- one for the person - reason for leaving - retirement, new job, etc theme. The other cake is to welcome the two new employees. My reason they are two different celebrations, you can keep the color scheme similar but you are giving each a good goodby and welcome. Just a thought

You could do two round cakes...one with the happy face and one the sad.

Could you do something like this? Clearly modifying the words... if you could still make them work so that when it is read from one side it says Goodbye/Goodluck or whatever and the other side it reads for the new comers?
