I have a sheet cake for a man turning 50 for this weekend. The problem is that the woman who ordered it wants ruffled scallops on the sides of the sheet cake with a rounded top edge. She wants everything gold and white. She also said she wants it to be pretty. This is for a man!! She wants 50 to be in the upper right hand corner and the rest to say, "Aged to Perfection".

How can I do this to look manly with ruffled scallops?

How about piping a borber above the scallop w/ a straight ribbon tip. Like tip 47, 48, 2B or 1D. This will give it a more tailored look.

Try not to curve the lettering too much. This will keep it from looking too feminine.

Maybe he's not a manly-man. icon_eek.gif

Find a very interesting font. I would make the #s rather large (& fancy but not feminine) so it takes up a good part of the corner. If you do a google search for fonts you will find some interesting ones. Print out the words & #s; turn the page over and trace them w/icing; turn page over onto cake and press all over that icing so it transfers onto the cake. If necessary pipe over that so it shows well.

I just did a quick search on google and found this site:
You can spend all day on there finding just the right fonticon_smile.gif My personal favorate of the couple dz I ck'd out is under the catagory "Famous Fonts" page 4; "Walt Disney" font.
I was able to see a preview of "aged to Perfection". Didn't find only #s thoughicon_sad.gif

post #5 of 5 is the best for finding fonts, and they are all free to download. I do a lot of graphic design, and this site is an absolute lifesaver sometimes.
