Im holding a fundraiser to raise money for ASPECT and to raise awareness of autism. Its kind of in honour of my son who is Autistic. I want to do a cake to go along with it but im getting stuck on designs (as usual). The puzzle piece is the ASD symbol, blue is the colour, or otherwise multi-coloured puzzle pieces. The event is called 'Drawtism' and its colours are bright rainbow really. The event is monday, I havnt done cakes for a while.. annnnd im super dooper short on time (as well as last minute preparations I need to write 2 x 2,000 word essays for uni by monday... lol).. so preferably would like the design to be relatively easy to execute but still have the 'wow' factor.. if at all possible!

thanks so much!!

Since it is "Drawtism: How about a big box of crayons

A rectangular cake on a bigger board , with the coloured Crayons sticking out one end and maybe a few more placed around the cake and maybe a childlike drawing with one of the crayons beside it , you could put the Logo on the box and maybe the name of the group ASPECT on the crayons or even Drawtism.

A Chalkboard cake would work equally as well. having your whole cake top as the blackboard. I have a blackboard cake in my pics , to give you a bit of an idea , you could use much more colour and pizzazz with your subject matter.
