My son's 4th birthday is coming up and I am needing some ideas. He loves Dinosaurs, transformers and star wars the clone wars. He said he wants all 3 for his birthday. Does any one have any ideas about how to incoprorate these things into one cake??
I doesn't need to be elaborate or anything, I haven't done a cake since his birthday last year so the easier the better. Oh and it only needs to feed about 30-35 people.
No one has any ideas???
And a bonus picture, you didn't mention Iron Man but I love this cake maybe your son will like it, I bet He will, my son Looooooooove it
I hope this can help you
I saved this in my favorites a while ago. What about doing a cube with a different theme on each side made using edible images.
or maybe a television...3-d or sheet cake. I have one in my photos that I made for my cousin's daughter. I don't have a edible image printer so I used a color print sealed in contact paper.

Not even clear contact paper is food safe, it leaches phthalates.
For more info on the dangers of phthalates:
Thanks JanH, I was worried about that and will never do it again. I only tried it because the contact paper was adhered to the the fondant only (with icing) which my family always pulls off. It never came came in contact with the underlying buttercream and cake...but I still will never do it again.
My 5 year old son's best buddy requested I make him just the 'landscape' for his cake. He wanted a Spiderman v. T-Rex birthday and wanted to place his own action figures on the cake (after his mom washed them very well, of course!).
I made a forest, erupting volcano, river, grass and sand area and he did the rest with his figures.
Hope this helps stimulate thoughts/ideas for your cake!
Haha. Sounds like SUCH a little boy cake!
My daughter one time wanted a Dora Butterfly Dinosaur with Icecream cake. What that turned out to be was my dora castle cake, with a dinosaur guarding the moat, and ice cream shaped cookies. You just gotta get crative.
Thanks for all the ideas. I actually asked him if he wanted to have dinosaurs fighting transformers and he got all excited so that is what we are doing, basically like how you said Korensmommy, I really don't like using "toys" on cakes but it's for my 4 year old son so whatever makes him happy!

Is he your avatar? What a cutie!
(You're going to be beating the girls off with sticks in a few years.)
That's him! That picture is about 1 1/2 years old though, He still looks exactly the same just a little older. I need to put a recent picture.
I agree with toys on cakes - I strive to make cakes that 100% edible. With that said, some people (especially kids) just love toys on their cakes! And if they're paying me, I'll do what they want!
