What about a cake that looks like a pocket protector?
Or glasses that have tape on them?

http://adam.wincustomize.com/Articles.aspx?AID=71386 has a cake for a geek-hopefully you can get to it. It is a computer-there is also a site on google for geek wedding cake toppers that might give you an idea or two!

of course!!!

what kind of cake is it? b-day, etc.

could even do a full person...taped glasses, pocket protector w/ blue, black, red pens and a pencil, pants that are high-waters w/ white socks of course and holding graph paper pad w/ the message

I like your idea Doug! If not a full body...maybe use one of the male character pans, Superman, etc. as a starting point. Sounds like a fun cake! Janice

change pad to laptop

add empty pizza box at feet

give eyes a slightly glazed/crossed look...

beard stubble, messy hair

and add a least one tech-toy like a PDA or a flash drive on a lanyard around the neck.

" I asked why he never answered..lol HAHA he says he is gonna pull the network from my computer icon_surprised.gif ... I think they are all great replies... I told him to go back to playing xbox and let me worry about the cake decorating part.. HAHA that shut him up...lol

Try this on for size::

Line 10 Happy Birthday!
Line 20 How do you entertain a computer geek for hours?
Line 30 GOTO Line 10

(This is ancient programming text, BASIC language.) Any self respecting computer geek will know this immediately, and oddly enough, will think it's funny. LOL

Ok I think im gonna try to make a laptop computer with the above reply tip... Cute .....
Ok so I have never made a 3-d cake like this but when using dowels do you freeze the cake first then insert dowels... and on a cake like laptop how many dowel should be used. I figure 5 or 6 ... Gonna start trying new things ...like 3-D cakes and Fondant Maybe icon_surprised.gif Im so overwhelmed want to try everything new I read... haha! but gonna start with this laptop computer cake. so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

I was thinking about Dilbert too ... or maybe Erkel. They are well known geeks.

Helendelk Posted 20 Feb 2006 , 5:57pm

I so forgot about Dilbert....... I think I like him better than doing a lap top or maybe have him using one.. I dont know but I will post what I make.. Thanks so much... Just goes to show how much I dont read the sunday paper or I would have remembered Dilbert...lol
