ACan there be too many words on a full sheet cake? The customer wants 7 words on top. Any suggestions?

there's room for seventy words on a full sheet if you can pipe -- i'm not sure what you mean unless you are using really large cut out letters or something -- i mean why don't they fit -- what other decor do they want?

As the artist Bob Ross used to say "It's your world." &

 “We don’t make mistakes; we just have happy accidents.”

 

You can always use a close color to blend it into the surrounding colors so the words won't stand out and clash.  It won't be quite as noticeable then.  Some of the cutest cakes are the Gary Larson 'Far Side' cake with lot's of writing on them.

i've told this story before but we had this one guy who came in regularly and bought our smallest case cake (already decorated) usually a 7" cake,  and he would be very particular about the many names each with a number and there is a finite space on an already decorated 7" cake but we got 'em all to fit on there and he would never say what these were for -- 

 

fast forward several several years and i found out in the paper that he was a therapist who among other things did AA meetings and the names and numbers were people celebrating years of sobriety -- he had been tragically shot and killed by one of his patients --

 

he bought dozens of cakes over the years almost weekly maybe hundreds -- he was a sweet hero -- god bless mr. bizot

 

but yeah you can fit multiple lifetimes on the top of a 7" cake

7 words?  easy breezy.

I used to COVER a multiple tiered wedding care in words.  The couples favorite poem, song lyrics or Bible verse.
