Picture it..........a cranky man who will turn 50.......he's Irish and very proud of it........but does not want a hint of turning 50.........the party is big......about 75 people......I've thought of all the Irish stuff; Leprechaun, rainbows, pot of gold........yadda, yadda, yadda...........

What do you think.....the theme is Irish......I was just wondering if I could get some creative ideas out there.................. icon_smile.gif

go green, find out where in ireland he's from, go searching on the net for the town, find the local pub and do a bct of the pub. A lot of work researching but you may put a smile on the mans face, people do appreciate the effort.

You could make a "pot of gold" cake and fill it with those golden chocolate coins.

I dunno... maybe it's just my warped sense of humor, but if he says all he wants is a spice cake, then that's all I would make for him. A spice cake, nothing else, no icing, no filling. Plain as can be. But then for the rest of the folks I'd make a nice cake with maybe a BCT of Ireland on it, or 4 leaf clovers, or maybe a BCT of Guiness.

You could cut the cake in the shape of Ireland using a printout off the internet (here's a possible source - www.map-ireland.com) and then using a reversed image of the exact same printout, do a BCT to cover the top of the cake. Then you could put the gold coins on the sides. If you use an electric carving knife, cutting the cake in the Ireland pattern would be easy (you just lay the printout on top and cut) and I have found that the electric knife does a great job of cutting down on crumbs. You can also put a gold star on the cake to show the city/ town he's from in Ireland.

iT'S due next weekend............I'll let you know

nernan Posted 25 Jun 2005 , 12:13am

Hope the cake went well cakelady, cant wait to see it.

cakelady Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 6:00pm

I made a pot of gold.......with gold coins.....it turned out great....BUT when I delivered it to the home of the party........the owners had been out shopping all day....they turned off the AC.......and the house was VERY HOT.......they set it on the talbe and well......I left.....I didn't stay around to see if it lasted.......I'm sure it didn't cool off in there too quickly........
I didn't take pictures of it........I had so many cakes due that day.....I didn't take pictures of any of them......I simply forgot...........

Misdawn Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 6:19pm

I'm sure it was great. That was a really good idea to do the pot of gold, mush easier than my suggestion.
