Nurse's Week Cake - Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale!


Happy Nurse's Week to all my fellow Nurses!

Many of you may not know this, but when I'm not crafting I'm probably working at the Cross Cancer Institute. I have been a RN there for over 16 years, and have loved every minute of it. My patients and coworkers have made that possible, truly they are simply the best! 

I was honored to be asked by our Local CCI Union Reps to make a cake for this week's festivities. Here is the cake I came up with for the occasion! The theme for the event was Florence Nightingale's Birthday.  I'm so happy with how it all came together.

The red symbol on the front of the cake is our Union's logo - UNA (United Nurses of Alberta)


Since this cake is in honor of Florence Nightingale's Birthday, I thought it would be cute to incorperate her throughout the cake.

Happy to see Ms. Nightingale takes her calcium, LOL!


Unfortunalely, looks like she maybe a Cancer patient,  poor Flo!
At 194 years old, it was bound to happen!
(All the patients at our hospital recieve a red card)


This cake measures, approx 14" in height. 
Bottom layer is an 11" round almond flavored white cake the top a 10" round chocolate cake. 
Entire cake was frosted with vanilla butter cream icing, covered and decorated with fondant.


Here are some more close up pics of the details on the cake. 



Nurse = big heart!



Hope you have enjoyed my Nurse's Week Cake. I think Florence would have loved her cake! I know my friends at work loved it and by this hour it's probably been entirely devoured!

Thanks for stopping by!
