In December My Mom's Side Of the family is coming down to our house to celebrate my Grandpa's 70th Birthday. It happens to be at the same time as christmas.
I wanted to make a golf cake for my grandpa but i also wanted to make a christmas cake. I also had the thought of doing a two or three tier cake and have each tier be celebrating something different like golf and chrstmas. Unless that might look too chaotic. Another thing is that I want to spend alot of time with family not too much with cakes.

What should I do?

It is a tough choice, however coming from someone whose birthday is near Christmas, I hate when my birthday gets lumped into the holidays. If my birthday were in June, it wouldn't be a Christmas/birthday cake.

But that is just my bitter opinion. icon_wink.gif

Could you do a small golf cake just for your grandpa and then a christmas cake. That way you get to do both, not too overwhelming and you can enjoy your holiday.

i vote for separate cakes. i really think birthdays should be special and seperate from other holidays.

Bake, fill, crumb coat and freeze the cake(s) the week before and make all of your BC and decorations ahead of time so all you have to do is frost and decorate the day before the gathering.

I agree with NickiKR, my birthday is around Christmas also and its the worst when the birthday cake is Christmasy and not a birthday cake. I say do two small cakes nothing really fancy and have fun with the family.

I like the santa playing golf. You could use Frosty as a golf partner and they can play on snow instead of grass. If not that I would also do two seperate cakes.
