Full Answer

Generally, a farewell message on a cake implies that the honoree is leaving for an extended period of time or permanently. Therefore, it is important to use the correct phrasing to mark the formality of the situation. Parting phrases can encompass a wide scope of formal and informal, cultural, situational and interpersonal contexts. The type of relationship significantly moderates what kind of farewell is used. Informal or slang farewells are typically used in jocular situations; phrases in English such as "break a leg," "keep on trucking" and "check you later" are examples of informal slang phrases.

Often, farewells from other languages are modified to become slang phrases in English. The French phrase "à tout à l'heure," translated as "see you later," is deliberately incorrectly translated into the English phrase "toodle-oo" or "toodles." Other common non-English language partings used worldwide include the Italian phrase "ciao," the French "au revoir," the Hawaiian "aloha" and the Spanish "adios."
