I am having a redneck themed birthday this weekend and would love some help on ideas. Although i have been decorating since I was 15 it has all been very basic and I am just now starting to try to branch out. I have a couple ideas but don't truly know how to pull them off. Please help!!!! Thanks a million!
Plaid shirt with no sleeves, and a car on cement blocks!
Sorry, that's all that comes to mind right now!
Is it for a man, woman, boy or girl? and what age?
anything having to do with John Deere, hunting, fishing, "Git R Done", think about all the "you might be a redneck" jokes maybe come up with something to go with that (could google Jeff Foxworthy and get a list of you might be a redneck things). it does kind of depend on if the recepient is male or female & the age - and the sense of humor. if they don't mind redneck jokes, you could go really funny.
maybe line the outside with twinkies?
You could make a giant moon pie.
OOOo moonpie and an RC cola!!! NOW THAT's just good southern livin' right there! LOL (i'm from chattanooga, tn originally! grew up on RC cola and moonpies!
LOL Thanks for the ideas. I already have RC cola and Moonpies for snacks hehe. I was debating on a car on blocks, but I've never done carving before...or a bucket of beer. I'm still thinking lol. I will probably add some of the redneck jokes somehow as well. Thanks!
Would the birthday person enjoy the toilet paper roll cake?
I did a Google search (my favorite thing to do) and the most used photo that could be a cake, is a flat of beer with candles like a cake.
One I did like was a trailer house cake (it even has photos for making it):
Thats hard! I like the ideas so far!! My favorite is the trailer house cake!! One question though whos it for? and what age are they?? cause that could change everything
I Want To See The Finished Cake
i was also going to suggest the trailer house. What about a rundown trailer with some junk on the yard. That's all I can think of. Reminds me of the show on CMT "Mobile home disaster" or something like that.
The cake is for me. 29 year old female. I'm trying right now to make the sugar beer bottles to bake a beer bottle cake, but if that doesn't work ( and it very well may not lol) I think I wanna try the mobile home or a car on blocks...but I've never done a carved cake and am scared lol
What about an outhouse? This could be accomplished 6" (or 4" if you have a pan that small) cakes stacked (and doweled every two layers).
I immediately thought of Melvira's plaid shirt too.
For some reason I keep thinking about the Jeff Foxworthy joke about saving and reusing aluminum foil.
You could use the car pan and then decorate that on blocks. but if you do a broken down car on the lawn you cant forget about the lazy dog on the porch. lol
The best cakes for carving are dense, like pound cake. The WASC cake is also great for carving!
What great ideas! lol I like the outhouse lol. Well my beer bottles didn't work so I will do some practicing on carving....hmmm a trailor with an outhouse and a broken down car...lol that would make for a funny cake
why don't you make a cake that looks like a bowl of batter (you cold even put it in a glass baking bowl)
ice the top and have it drip all over the sides
make the cake board look like a "tin" counter
then you could make candles out of fondant and have them all over the cake in a mismatched form
OR you could make a wooden spoon and make a flame at the top ... (hahahahaha that is funny)
if you want to write something
You know your a redneck if.....
Your cake consists only of batter, icing, and a wooden spoon for a candle.
(if you want you could even make just one beer can and have it pour out the icing over the cake...)
I'm having to much fun with this one... LOL
Thanks for all the ideas! I finally came up with a cake I'm pretty proud of. Here is the link...
it looks good. by the way happy belated birthday! i hope you had a great time.
