I have a 10inch round cake on a 12inch round board. It's a tie dye/peace sign theme and I need to put two seperate "Happy --th Birthday (name)" and "Happy --th Birthday (name) onto the board. I can't really pipe it onto the cake or sides of the cake because it will cover up the design.
I didn't realize how little space I would be left with on the board. I was wondering does anyone have any neat ideas of how I can get those two happy birthdays incorporated onto the board or cake.
I thought of putting in wires and have the sayings on fondant sticking out above the cake but that's a lot of writing for that so I'm not sure what to do... Should I just pipe it small enough to fit around the cake on the board or are there any better ideas out there? TIA!!!
Do you HAVE to have the birthday numbers in there? Can you just put "Happy Birthday Bill and Sally"?
I know exactly what you mean by having less space than you think on a cake board! Do you HAVE to write anything? I'm not great at piping letters and my theory is that everyone at a party knows why they are there so its not really necessary to have happy birthday ... on the cake. But, I know people like to have their kid's (or their own) names on the cake. What about just the peoples' names and their numbers instead of happy birthday? I have done that before, I put the name Ella and then a 2 on the cake board because I didn't have room for happy birthday. It got the point across.

You know, I'm agreeing with this more and more. We all know why we're there!
Given the lack of space, I would migrate to off cake with a little signs made with toothpicks poked into a chocolate or cupcake or something
placed on a seperate little server by the cake.
little gumpaste flags could look good. either a big one (2 supporting poles) for each person, or a word on each smaller flag.
OK you could totally rock out individual words in RI as signs. Lay down toothpicks and Pipe over them on wax paper. Let dry and peel off and you have customs signs you can now stick into the limited space while still matching the colors and feel of the cake. I love things that stick out of the tops of cakes!!!
boy this couldn't have come at a better time, i'm making a sponge bob cake, and am limited on space and it's for a 5 year old, i have RI made but i don't think i can use it in that little ruler mold, thinking of using fondand but it's kind of old, not sure what to use. any other suggestions
When I can't fit in writng or the design doesn't allow for it too much I make a banner out of fondant and either write on it with edible markers or pipe it on with buttercream or royal icing. I use a small tip also like a 2 or 3. Hope this helps!
