I'm making a farewell cake for an amazing woman I could go on and on about. She is very, very hard-working and has created children's programs that help with literacy and other issues in under-served communities. I've come up with a design that I like. The top tier is where I would like some help please. I want to show her hands reaching out - the one hand has a heart in the palm for her tremendous compassion and complete giving of herself. The other hand is where I am stumped. I had thought of placing tools to show she's hard-working and she provides tools for children to be able to improve their lives. But literal "tools" just don't look right.

Does anyone have suggestions for me please?

Okay, this is what I thought of right off the bat. What about using the items that the characters from the Wizard of Oz where looking for - a heart (you have that one) a brain, courage (he got a medal) etc. Those are all things that she would have taught them along with the educational aspect of her giving. Just a thought. Would love to see a pic when you are done.

Thanks Kimma1299. I'm not familiar with the Wizard of Oz so I'll have to research that. Thanks for the idea. I'll be sure to post a picture icon_smile.gif

It occurs to me that you could sit a child on the palm of that hand. Fondant, gumpaste, whatever.
