Retirement is an important and exciting event in one's career, as well as one's life. After years in the department, many squads celebrate the career and retirement of a sheriff with a retirement party. Make the sheriff's retirement even more memorable by surprising him with an impressive retirement cake.

Traditional

For a retirement celebration for a sheriff who likes to keep it simple, stick to a classic, beautifully frosted cake with a warm celebratory message. A round, two layer cake or a sheet cake has a traditional look guaranteed to please almost anyone. Such a simple cake can easily be decorated to meet the preferences of the retiring sheriff, from a clean, basic look of white buttercream to a cheery, energetic cake covered in different coloured fondant. Finish off the cake with some warm well wishes, such as, "Congratulations on your retirement!"

Sheriff's Must-Haves

Make a unique, quirky cake that is sure to blow away the retiring sheriff, as well as make her laugh. A good-humoured sheriff will get a kick out of a creative cake that looks like a variety of the objects a sheriff needs. A cake shaped as a large Stetson hat, handcuffs, a mug of coffee and a doughnut are some suggestions.

Cupcake Tier

Rather than worrying about transporting, slicing and serving a large cake, celebrate a sheriff's retirement with a cake-like snack that's easier to enjoy while standing at a party: cupcakes. These individual treats are great for carrying around and make less of a mess. Plus, you can order a variety of flavours to ensure everyone is pleased. To match the theme, have the cupcakes decorated with the police department's seal or an officer's badge. For an impressive display, stack a number of cupcakes on a tiered dessert holder.

Police Car

For a sheriff who has spent many years patrolling the street, pay homage to the retiring officer as well as his car with a car-shaped cake. Many bakeries that focus on creating unusually shaped cakes can whip up a car-shaped creation, even one inspired by the appearance of the sheriff's patrol vehicle. Pick a flavour of cake and provide the bakery with a picture of the car. A car-shaped cake will certainly make the retirement party even more exciting.
