Advice please!
I'm doing a 10 in square graduation cake. "Congratulations Sean" is too long to fit and look decent. I did one last week and just put 'Congrats, Lorin" on it, but I'd really like some other suggestions. The only other thing I can think of is "Well done Sean" but he's a graduate, not a steak! Any ideas or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Put the message on an angle from one corner to the other.
Use smaller tip (tip2 is good) for the writing, making the letters tall and thin.
Though not a grad cake this will give you an idea of what I am talking about:

Thanks, Kakeladi! I should have mentioned I'm using tappits or whatever they're called, I'm not writing it out in script. But maybe I'll practice my writing and go with that. Thanks!
