I've looked in the gallery but I'd like to do a very boyish cake. Any ideas? I have months to plan this but I have been thinking about this since Xmas!
If you go to my picasa website, under religious occassions I've done several first communion cakes for boys that you might like. One is stacked, the other just a round cake. HTH.
Have you seen this one by alanahodgson:
mgdqueen: What a beautiful cake! The host, chalice and rosary are perfect! Did you make them out of fondant/gumpaste?
Edit to add:
I personally really like the look of the stained glass cakes (with the "glass" part done in colored piping gel). Maybe you could incorprate that into the cake using really bright colors (yellow, green, and blue are sort of the "classic" boy colors that come to my mind)?
An open bible cake is really popular too. Not really feminine, perhaps just some scripture written on the top.
This one I made for a boy. I did not use enough layers of cardboard as base, so slight flexing caused the cracked-look and the flash did not go off (which is why it is not in my pics). But take my word for it - it was a very nice cake. The pic does not do it justice. The stained glass was piping gel and you can barely tell from this photo, but it is a chalice and host with other "stained glass" around it to look like a stained glass window.
I made an open bible cake for my son's communion. You can have a stained glass window one page and a scripture on the other. Anything would work - a picture of a host and chalice, a cross, a scripture. They have plenty of wonderful pics in the gallery for communion cakes. Let them inspire you. Good luck.
I have quite a few communion cakes in my photos. Basically all sheet cakes.
