I'm planning a surprise 40th party for my husband I need some fun, teasing cake ideas. I am currently planning on one shaped like a buzzard that says happy birthday you old buzzard on it.. or one of a house with the grim reaper at the door, ;but they sound not silly and/or mean enough for him. Does anyone have ant ideas? Don't worry, he can take it.
exactly how mean do you want to be?? i did one before for a woman that was a graveyard and the tombstones all said things like "hey i know you", "see ya soon buddy", "we've got a special place just for you", "reserved for jim", you know, mean things like that . if you want the tombstones to stand up on the cake buy chocolate coated vienna cookies from the grocery store and write on the choc. side and stick one end in the cake (i tilt some of the one their sides like they've fallen over), they're oval shaped and look really cute as tombstones! hope this helps and good luck ! danielle
Hi, for my husband's 40th surprise party my friend made him a troll cake (Wilton's cake pan) with 'salt and pepper' hair. She mixed black and white icing together with a marble effect to pipe the hair and it looked wonderful. Since my husband has a mustache she used the same icing to make it. It looked great and everyone got a huge kick out of it. Went great with all the black balloons and streamers we had hung up
Thank you all so much for the fantastic ideas! I really love the viagra pill and the graveyard cakes but I need to feed about 50 people. Do you think it's tacky to make a few "mean" cakes? That way I could make a chocolate and a white cake and everyone will be happy with the flavors. I have 'till September 30th so keep the ideas coming! Thank you so much again for your great, creative thinking!
