We're doing a campfire cake for my niece's 5th birthday party. All the peanuts characters roasting marshmallows from atop the 1st tier (fire will be on sides of the first tier), night sky on 2nd tier. I can't think of a good way to do the "Happy Birthday" or her age, either as a top tier, or as some kind of topper piece. Any ideas? The only thing I can come up with is maybe another sky tier with the stars spelling it out, but that seems sort of lame. I'm VERY out of practice and the idea well is pretty dry. Thank you in advance for any help!

Maybe you can spell out Happy 5 th birthday in fondant that has the appearance of wood or match sticks. Like someone would gather wood or tree branches to spell out SOS.
