The blank notecards that come with your cake are to write a notes of sentiment, a short poem, poke fun or share a memory that links to the gift that’s in that particular box. For gifts that are too large for a box, use a notecard to write a riddle or clever clue that will lead the recipient to a larger gift that you’ve hidden in the celebration area.

However you decide to use them, to make your Gift-It Cakes presentation its most memorable, incorporate personal shared memories, references and clues that the recipient will recognize and connect with. These personal messages will create the opportunity for the recipient to elaborate on the reference or clue, forcing them to “tell the story”.

This, is what makes Gift-It Cakes so much fun, it encourages engagement! Which creates more beautiful…memories and connections!

If you don’t know the recipient well enough to have the personal references or clues, we’ve compiled a list of riddles that may be of use. We’ve complied these riddles and clues from various sources and we’ll add to this list periodically as we come across them. If you have riddles or clues you’d like to share, please share them with us!
