Well you dont have to stick with the Fourth of July theme. Is there a theme to his party? Cars? Diego? You could go with that theme and run with it and make an awesome cake. If you need ideas for a specific theme just let me know.

Otherwise, you could do what I am doing. My husband's birthday is on the fourth of July. He is turning 30 this year. I am going to make him a Fireworks cake. Its going to have one red, one white, and one blue tier. The red will have white stripes, the blue will have white stars. I dont know what I want to do on the white tier yet, but I still have time icon_smile.gif . I am going to use sparklers, and stick them in the cake with pvc pipes. I am also making a small 6 inch cake that we are going to "blow up" with M80's, but thats another story. Feel free to steal my idea!

I agree.. you don't HAVE to make it a 4th of July themed cake.. unless you want to of course.

Thanks for the ideas...seems like a couple of you are military wives, and I used to be in the Navy, so part of me wants to do a theme, but he loves water and books, and the dollar store has some cheap luau decorations, so I was thinking maybe a shipwreck theme tied in with the 4th? Maybe a shipwreck cake with an American flag?

Here I am chiming in....I love children's birthday cakes....they always have wide eyes and excitement we they see cake of any sort...and then when it is fun and different it is like being at Disney for them....

Now you mentioned a ship wreck and American my mind saw...

Ship on beach...American Flag on beach...standing upright, blowing in the breeze...and a little boy sculpted out of fondant making a sand castle next to it in the sand...Very summery...You could name the ship after him too....You could write the Happy Birthday message in the sand....All on a sheet cake with the 3D ship sticking out....oh...can I do it for you???

Thanks for asking this question! My daughter was born last year on the 4th of July. When she was born, the 1st thing my husband said is: I bet you are thinking about all the cakes you can make her now!!
