My Aunt's boyfriend loves Caving. I recently learned that is when you tie ropes to yourself and climb down into caves. This is the theme she wants his Birthday Cake to be. Any and ALL ideas are welcome, I'm drawing blanks! Thanks in advance!!!

What if you did the cake as a caving helmet with a light on it and the straps that keep them on your head. Then some other gear, like the ropes and caribiners, molded around it. Ask her what gear he uses and any brands he likes and copy those.

Here's a thought. How about a bundt or angel food pan. You can cover it with grass, maybe a few flowers and have a figure in cave gear climbing on a rope down the hole in the middle of the cake.

Just a thought. icon_wink.gif

There is a really cute cave diver cake in the gallery made by Zahrah. If you do a search for it you'll find it. HTH

If it is more "Splunking" than "Caving" you could make a cake that looks like a river running through it, with stalagmites and stalagtites running (from top to bottom and bottom to top) Then have little bats hanging from the ones on the "ceiling"

I have gone "caving/Splunking" a few times. However I believe (but am not 100 percent sure) that Splunking is more of an underground thing... I'm not sure if there is a difference in "caving" than "Splunking" DIRT and DIRTY are the words that come to mind

Here is a great idea for your Dirt/MUD
Take pudding and crush oreo cookies into it (my step son LOVES this stuff) very tasty... I have made it thicker by using whipping cream instead of milk...

good luck!
