Dh just called to say he volunteered (or military speak VOLUNTOLD) me
to make a birthday cake for a guy in his unit...and uhh the birthday boy's b-day is tomorrow!

So basically a round cake to serve 12 people - I really need ideas, I'll be paid $20 for it -which I'm okay w/ but I just need to figure out a decent design that won't exaust alot of time!

You could always do a Halloween theme!

Yeah...I could, but dh just called back and said - oh btw please no military theme, so then I said... oh I could do halloween and he said "no, b/c I just brought the cake up here yesterday that was a halloween cake" icon_evil.gif

so I'm thinking...maybe an M&M theme cake...or would that be too cheesy for a guy?!

How about something simple? You know blue borders, blue HAPPY BIRTHDAY WHOEVER, blue BC roses? It sounds like a Grocery store cake but its a short notice and they arent throwing you any ideas!

I'm with Atomikjen, go with a chocolate cake. Who doesn't like chocolate??

I did a simple one in my gallery. Just skip the rose on top and write "happy birthday".

good luck,
