One of my coworkers is leaving, as her husband got a job in Germany teaching English. I probably won't see her again, nor talk to her again, so I'm not sure which of the many ways to say "goodbye" in German I should use.

Would auf Wiedersehen be appropriate? I want to write goodbye in different fonts around the cake, and place a chocolate transfer of the German flag on top (6" cake).

Also, would white fondant look OK? Basically, cover the 6" cake with white fondant, write goodbye in German all around it, but have the flag on top?

Auf wiedersehen is just fine. You could also use the more casual "tschus" and add "alles Gute." Add an umlaut above the "u" in tschus. Also, alot of germans say "caio." Auf widersehen is considered alittle more formal and something you say to someone you really don't know well or is just an acquiantance. I grew up in the southern part of Germany so my german is alittle more "casual and relaxed." LOL! A southern dialect if you will! Good luck and let me know how it turns out!!

Thanks! Maybe I can place all of them on the cake, just the different ways of saying goodbye...

I'll definitely post a picture when it's all said any done. icon_smile.gif
