I just took an order for a Tinkerbell/fairy cake... for a man! I'm still kind of chuckling, but I am also freaking out! I have only ever made fairy cakes for little girls, this is a 33 year old guy! Any ideas on how to decorate the cake??? Anyone else ever had a strange order like this? icon_confused.gif

Maybe a very ADULT tinkerbell???? Are there any other instructions?

Yeah, I'm guessing there has to be a story behind this. Or does he think she's totally hot or something (if so, I agree, make an adult "sexy" version). I would try to find out what that story is so you can decorate accordingly. Sounds like it could be interesting!

I have found that the new "Tinkerbell and friends seem a little more "mature" then the fairy of old. I would have to go with shannon0407 and say make the cake adult themed, but check with the person who ordered the cake. There are A LOT of hardcore Disney Fans that have a favorite character (Men and Women) and he might just love the fairy! If that where the case, it might not go over as well with someone who just loves the regular tinkerbell....

Just a thought.. (I have a brother who simple adores MiniMouse, just as she is.....)

My uncle loves Tinkerbell... but he's gay, so definitely check with whoever ordered the cake first. An adult version may do nothing for him, if that were the case. Just a thought...

well, apparently the guys is gay, but that is all I know. Maybe there is a joke behond it, but maybe he loves Tinkerbell. I am almost afraid to ask! But I guess I will have to so that I get a better idea! oh my!

Who ordered the cake? The man, his wife, a co-worker? Is it meant to be as a joke? I'm suprised the person who ordered didn't kind of clue you in.

I can't offer any ideas but I had to share, my husband's very good friend is turning 30 in two weeks... his girlfriend has rented out an entire bar in NYC for his birthday, she invited everyone and their brother and the theme is My Little Pony! I thought that was so funny.
ps. I found a really cute tinkerbell cake online, I believe it was here but I don't know the name of the decorator since I saved it to my computer. if you'd like it, send me a PM. I don't want to get into any trouble for posting other people works or anything!

I talked to the customer, apparently it is his favorite disney character, and they want it to be very classic. I think I have come up with a general concept, so I'll let you all know how it works out. Thanks for the imput!

My mother has a gay friend who collects dolls and just loves Tinkerbell. He loves her just the way she is..so you might want to check. The guy might just love Tinkerbell the way that you see her for children on their cakes. icon_smile.gif

Tinkerbell is awesome. I would love to see pictures of the cake when your done. I agree, doing a rainbow or something like that.
