Just forget he is a preacher. He is just a man like any other. What would you do for an order for any man turning 70?

One yr I found a pic of some cartoon cows which I drew on waferpaper (long before frosting sheets & edible inks), put halos above their heads. The message was 'Have an udderly heavenly b'day".
Another yr I did a round cake w/clowns sitting on/ around the edge
with the message "No joking, have a happy b'day".
If wanting to make it a special age....make the #s '7' & '0' about 3-4" big cut out of fondant or cookies w/fondant as icing or mold chocolate; place in the center of a sheet cake; make an oval border about 5x7 and fill in between that & the edge of the cake w/jimmies. OR dry them and stand them up on top of a cake. These can be colorful or gold or silver or whatever to make them stand out. Then do a modifiled Lambeth for borders. I have a small round choco cake w/this idea in my pix.

Make an open book (Bible) and using fancy script write out his favorite scripture on one side/pg, and pipe a cross on the other.

Don't know how to attach pix other than in my pix so if you send me an *e-mail* I can send yu some ideas that might help

This one looks girlie, but it could easily be modified. The church is made of gum paste.

This is kinds obvious, but there is a Wilton 'Book' cake pan. Make a Bible cake.
