When my boss turned 40 I did a cake with a vulture on it. over the vulture I put "Lordy Lordy" and under the vulture I put "Wayne is 40" and the vulture had pooped buttercream icing on the 40. He (and everyone else) loved it! I'll have to post it later or tomorrow.

All good ideas! I kinda liked the one that was posted the other day with the candles, it said something like "They are following you David", thought it was pretty good for a guy! Janice

I did a cake for a 30th b-day and made a "fortune" wheel on it with different sayings like "older than dirt" "over the hill" older than dinosaurs". You get the idea. I made it interactive to where people could spin an arrow!
