Farewell parties are always bittersweet occasions because on one hand, you have to bade goodbye to a colleague or friend and on the other, you wish prosperity & success for them in the years to come. It is needless to say that the occasion has to be made as special & memorable for that person as can be. There are plenty of ways to do so, and getting a beautiful and yummy cake is one of them.
In the under mentioned points, I have described some delicious cake ideas that you can use if you are planning a farewell party or have to plan one soon:
Presenting goodbye cards to the person for whom the farewell party's been organised is an old and common norm. To give this tradition a new twist, you can ask all the invitees to inscribe their signature on the cake with icing. Bear in mind that if the number of guests are too many, you may have to order a large cake or multiple smaller ones. Use icing in different colours to make sure that the signatures stand out.
Box Or Suitcase Cakes
Ordering a suitcase or travel luggage box themed cake can also be great for someone’s farewell party. The confection may be embellished with details like fondant stickers, company logo, handles, etc. You can even write the name of the person who’s going away. Inedible items like packing labels, suitcase tags and bubble wrap would be ideal as toppers.
Sarcastic Farewell Messages
If the individual who is leaving has a fun and cheerful personality, you can order a cake with some sarcastic farewell message written on it, such as “You’re A Traitor”, “Nobody Will Miss You”, “May You Always Fail”, etc. It would help to lighten the sombre mood of the occasion. But be careful so as not to make the message too aggressive, otherwise it can hurt the feelings of the recipient.
Is the person quite happy about the place or company they are going to? Then have a cake prepared as per the map of the new location or company’s logo. If the individual is moving to a particular city, its name can be inscribed on the cake with icing too.
I hope you liked these creative and fun farewell cake ideas. I am afraid that I have to end it here for today. But don’t worry, I will be back soon with something more interesting. So keep watching my blog space and don’t forget to share.
