I need some ideas for a 50th birthday for a male for January 2. He like to run (in fact he is training for a marathon), love Irish music, canoeing and his kids adores him. Oh his nick name is "Big D".

I was thinking a combination of 6" round and 10" square iced in butter. Or should I used Fondant

I was thinking of a 6" cake with stars (Fondant) on a stick coming out of the cake and the number 50 made out of fondant in front of the stars and the underneath the stars and 50th I will write in Buttercream Happy Birthday "Big D" .

the 10" will have the 6" placed in the center and one side a track and field something and the other side water and a canoe paddle.

What is you view? Should I think of something different. This cake is a big deal as alot of people will be at this party.

I dont have to stick to this design, Other new ideas are welcome

I think your idea sounds great. You could also tie in the Irish heritage by having a leprechaun running on the track.

Even though it covers a lot it doesn't sound like an over decorated idea.

Thank you Dmich, I just finished making Michelle Fondant, so I will attempt to make the leprechaun and other fondant figures tomorrow.

I will keep you'll posted on the fondant figures and final product.

I have posted some figures for the cake in my photo section, check it out and tell me what you think. This is my first time doing figures. I need more practice ( Leprechanun, canoe, paddle and 50th).
