Confession – when I first got the flyer for this class reunion cake last summer, I was a little confused. At first glance, I thought it was a 60th reunion cake. But that wasn’t good math for the Class of 1971.
So I stared at it a little longer and finally it clicked. The members of the class of 1971 were turning 60 years old. I know, I know… I’m a little slow sometimes 😉
So here are the details of the cake…
For the top, I hand-cut the 60 (using a template of numbers I printed out). I used my FMM Ribbon cutter to cut out the banner, then I used 3 different sets of alphabet/number cutters to do all the wording:
- Alphabet Cookie Cutters from Brown Cookie for the “Class of”
- Number Cookie Cutters from Brown Cookie for the “1971”
- Fox Run Alphabet Cutters for the “turns”
Update (after getting a couple of questions in the comments): For the border, I used an Ateco tip #863 from this Ateco Large Tube Set (one of my most favorite things) and for the color – I used Americolor Tulip Red. It’s brighter (and a little more orange-y) than Super Red, but I love it. If it’s too orange for your project, you can mix it with Americolor Super Red for a really perfect red!
And that’s all, I think! Any questions about this cake?
