Birthday/School Cake! Help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a double stack cake to do for Saturday. The bottom will be a 12" round (filled) and the top will be an 8" round (filled). I need ideas for decorations. I see lots of teacher cakes...but not really any school cakes for a birthday party. The boy is 6 years old in Kindergarden. He likes red which would go well on a school cake. Any ideas?????

Maybe some crayons, a school bus.Some of his favorite cartoon characters with backpack on their backs.Maybe some colors that would go with the colors from his clasroom.Geez......I really don't have any idea as to what else to sugest.
Good luck though.

Hi Stacie,

There is a pic in my photos of a sheet cake I did for the teacher appreciation luncheon, on it I put a FBCT of 2 little kids writing on a whiteboard (all they seem to have in schools these days). When I downloaded the pic, the board had no writing, so I used Photoshop to put the saying I wanted and printed it out (backeards, of course).

I'm sure, if you wanted to go that way, the pic could be adapted to a round cake through re-sizing. I think it would make a great school/b-day cake, if you had the kids writing "happy birthday _____" on the board.

If you want that graphic, I have it and would be glad to send it to you. The font I used is called "first grader", I am not sure where I got it but I can probably send that file too.

Let me know,

Toni Ann
