I am making a "Good night moon" themed cake for my friends' daughter's 1st b-day. It is a FBCT of the book cover.
How do I personalize it? Her name is Lauren and she is turning 1.
I thought maybe I could put "Good night one" (or "1") instead of moon? Or is that too silly? Then "Happy birthday Lauren" on the small section that's left on the cake. I don't want it to look too busy.... I am putting little grey moons and/or stars in RI on the border to match the moon on the transfer.

I'd appreciate suggestions!TIA icon_smile.gif

What about putting "Lauren's Goodnight Moon"

I would do the cover exactly like it is and not change the name but write Happy 1st Birthday Lauren on the bottom where the author's name is.
Or, you can fiddle with the picture and put a birthday cake on the mantle instead of a clock. Put a picture of Lauren in the frame instead of the cow.

Don't forget to make her a little smash cake! Probably moon shaped, or make it a window with the moon in it.

I woud not write "goodnight one" because it sounds more like she is leaving one instead of turning one.

Thanks for the great advice all - here's the result. I'm very pleased with it - need to work on my squiggly lines in my FBCT's, but it's waay better than the first one I did!
Sadly, the party was cancelled... baby Lauren is really sick. I'm going to drop the cake off and she'll have to freeze it. I know the FBCT will probably run, but not much can be done. Any other ideas? I have no freezer space!
