I have a 13yr old son. He loves all sorts of things. I the parents were not much help, but maybe you can call him back and ask them what kinda of things does their son like, hobbies, sports (my sons a big sports fanatic) music, favorite school subject. Is he into clothing, shoes? The last cake I did for my son wasn't any of the above. He wanted a chocolate cake, choc. filling, choc. frosting w/ choc. dipped strawberries on top.
Good luck and I hope I gave you a couple of ideas.

I would second what Michelle said. Call them back and ask them some information about his interests. Is he into comic book characters? The new X-Men movie comes out this weekend and that is going to be very big for the next month or so. Spiderman is also a good bet if he likes that type of thing.

I think if you phrase it as what is he into rather than what type of cake, you will be able to get a bit more information.

Thank you!

The most I could get was a cake that is not too sweet. He is a real couch potato. I was thinking a video game controller but he doesn't play them. I actually am feeling sorry for this kid and wanting to take him outdoors to get him some exercise. I like the idea of the strawberries dipped in chocloate.

Maybe a banana nut bread with bananas on top and swirled chocolate over them. Not too sweet.
Just boring....

At 13, my son was into wrestling and skateboarding. Maybe he has a favorite movie, wrestler, rock star, tv show or something. If still no help, you could always do the cake to look like a remote control since he's a couch potato.

it's really sad for a parent to call you & not have a clue thumbsdown.gif ; call them back and ask them if they dont have a theme in mind then at least give you his favorite flavors. My son is going to be 12 this year and i feel sure that if will want the same cake as last years 'his mimi's cake" no theme, no decorations...so kids 'even couch potatoes' have a favorite-they do eat-....(note- my son is not a couch potato) & i'm totally with you on taking him outdoors for exercise-oops there's u a theme-HA HA icon_wink.gif

good luck

Thanks Ya'll for the gret ideas. I really like the remote idea. I can't tease him with the hamberger but they don't appear too difficult.

Have a great day!

I saw this cake at www.fantacycakes.com.au

Ok here are two different ideas... One being a skateboard which would be right up a 13 yr old alley... GMcakes did an excellant job on this one... Hope she doesn't mind me posting her pic ..ITS great tho!
Then maybe an X-box which my best friend made one for my grooms cake since DH loves xbox..lol Both would be great ideas for a 13 yr old.
