We are celebrating my husbands 30th birthday tomorrow and I have yet to decide what kind of cake to make him.
I am drawing a balnk, I can't think of anything, and he is no help.
I want it to be "manly" but it can't be a boobie cake or anything like that (we are celebrating with his family).
I asked him what he wanted and all he did was tell me what he did'nt want, basketball, video game, sports jersey,transformers etc. He wants a "grown up" cake, not a kid cake, this coming from the man who had begged me for a PS3 or XBOX for his birthday.
So I am at a loss, what do I make, does anyone have any suggestions?

If it's going to be chocolate, you could use Hersheys Kisses as a border and write "Kiss Your 20's Goodbye!" on the cake.

there's your answer...

if you haven't given him his PS3 or xbox yet, then make the cake like one them or the box they come in and just tell him that's all that you could afford!!!

then when he's looking all crestfallen, bring out the real thing.

no one said you can't be a bit evil on a b-day!

Ok I thought of something, its not on his "don't list" so I think I 'm going to go for it. Its a 3-D Homer Simpson sitting in his chair.
Now I just need help figuring out how to make it. I would like it all to be cake (Homer and the chair). Any suggestions?

Oh by the way I love the kisses idea, and prank thats right up our alley!

here's help on the chair and ottoman

start w/ a 12x18 sheet



carve to get the rounded shapes of Homer's chair

Make fondant figure of homer to sit in chair.

for homer out of cake: mini wonder for the tummy, RKT ball for head, the strips of cake from a small sheet cake, cut and rounded for the arms and legs (or could use those round snack cakes for the legs!)

(the light blue arm pieces are larger than needed to allow for lots of carving down to get the rounded shape)
