Congratulations is such a big word on cake

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Is there another word for congratulations?

My client wants congratulations on the side of a 8 inch cake next to a medium sized gumpaste bow

The bow will be placed to the side.

I am afraid that the word "congratulations" is just so long and will wrap around cake!

I cannot write on cake because my hands are too shaky.

I cannot make a plaque because i have bows on cake and a dome flower spray on top and it may look cluttered.

Any advice? icon_smile.gif

Thanks fellow cakers!

Sure, you use the cake board! Like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yuma_couture_cakes/7201041642/in/photostream

One more way to dress up your cakes, is put letting and decorations on the boards.

If you're worried about piping, you could try using Tappits to make the letters. You can see here how much of the cake the word "congratulations" takes up, though.

Would the customer be okay with shortening it to "Congrats!" ?

Thanks everyone

 

This is the kind of cake that she wants.

Of course I told her it would not be exact.

 

I dont think i could make it that awesome anyway:P

 

She wants them placed on the white trim next to bow on top tier that will be 8 inch

and the brides name on bottom tier trim. that cake is 11 inch.

 

I love tappits and I have the new fondant alphabet molds from wilton but i am just afraid that it may not look uniform and pretty.

 

It is for a bridal shower.

 

For some odd reason I am so nervous about this cake! :0

If you go with Tappits I would get the block letters and not the funky letters. The Wilton ones will work but I don't like the font style. I would also use the board for the message so it doesn't interfere with that design.

I have the block tappits and they're not so big,if you went with the lower case they'd definitely fit on there.

If you're duplicating that design, I would definitely put the lettering on the board. Would look so much prettier that way.

I think they will look better on the board too.

I will do that. I just hope she is not dissapointed.

But i'm telling you guys right now, i would be really suprised if my cake is that good.

I cannot find that shade of pink anywhere. But the client just wants plain pink anyway.

I will post pics as soon as I complete the cake.

Wish me luck!

To follow up my PM, a 6-9 would give you enough too, unless you are using party servings, but I use the same servings for weddings/everything else.

that pink looks peach to me

 

but my point is if you want a true light pink--start with stark white fondant

 

the trim looks pale pale yellow too --or candlelight color

 

but you'll never get pale pink if you use real vanilla like in a buttercream

 

but you do get a pretty peach ;)

 

on the writing--what about an edible ink marker and writing/printing it on the ribbon lying flat on the table

 

then applying the ribbon trim to the cake maybe

 

oh and 'mazel tov' means congratulations in Hebrew
