Dunno what's worse, boards that force thread titles into title-case, with no way to override, or excessively aggressive profanity filters. The suggestion that you find out as much about the decorations and so forth as possible is the best yet: it will give you a window into what's on your niece's mind.

 

I grieve with thee.

Maybe a plainly frosted cake with a few butterflies instead of angels. I think butterflies signify hope and beauty but also have a more solemn quality. I'd use pale pastel colors, and not too many.

I grieve for any mother who lost their child.  It is a horrible thing.  Just know that one day when you get into Heaven you will see them again!!!! You will always have memories and no one can ever take the memories away from you.  My brother died 48 years ago and every year of my brother's birthday my mom still thinks of him!!! My prayers go out to all mothers whose child is now in Heaven with Jesus!!! One day we will meet them when we leave this earth and all be together again!!!! Until that time, may God give peace and comfort to those who are grieving!!!

No more comments about counseling.  It's completely inappropriate and I'm offended for the OP that this has even been suggested or discussed in this thread.  Help with design or keep your 2 cents to yourselves.

Also, this is a secular board.  Suggesting religious designs is OK, openly worshiping is not OK, no matter how appropriate it seems.

 

Thank you.

Thank you. x

This is my personal favorite Angel Baby cake.  I cried the 1st time I saw it.

Awesome cake, From Scratch. That empty chair says so much more than an entire cake full of dead baby angels.

Oh wow how wonderfully done. with all the guests turned toward the chair ...

 

and the the precious little birthday cake and the little unoccupied birthday hat in the chair. Geez if I had to make that cake I'd need a botle of valium anda case of kleenex.

Thank you all for the honest suggestions. I will avoid anything angels, and skip the bright cheery stuff. What a beautiful cake FromScratch. It does say a lot. I also love the cake you made Relznik. It's beautiful. I think I will go with something simple like that. Kblickster I did follow the link to the blog you suggested, and my goodness... It does though give a little insight into what my niece may be thinking and feeling. It must hurt so much.. I do agree she is afraid people will forget her baby girl. I would be afraid of the same. We all forget a little as time goes on, we forget the little things like how the person smells, the sound of their voice. Unfortunately my niece did not have very much time with Peyton, and there are many milestones that she will never see her reach and have that memory of her reaching. I can't even imagine the pain of never seeing your baby grow. Thank you all for your condolences and kind words. Our family has done the best we can in keeping Peyton's memory alive and to make sure she is always in our hearts.

One of my very closest friends lost her baby at 38 weeks gestation. We got together some money from her close friends and paid to dedicate a tree at the local botanical garden in his memory, and she goes there whenever she wants to be close to him. The tree we chose has flowers and so we all post pictures of that flower on our blogs on his birthday every year. You can do things like this at the park district, at the zoo, all kinds of places.

Relznik's cake is beautiful....I think butterflies are the way to go so ethereal.

The link below was a cake under the exact same circumstances.  My friend lost her baby when she was only 18 days old.  She wanted to mark her first birthday with a cake, so this is what I made for her...  no words except the name.    It's pretty, but slightly understated (compared to many 1st birthday cakes).

I think your cake is a perfect example. Beautiful cake by the way!
