You can make a "3" shaped cake by using two rounds and icing the number on top (there are some "3" race car track cakes that have done this - do a gallery search and you'll see what I mean). You might also ask her what her plates and napkins look like and do a cake that will coordinate with that - that's what I often do for kids' parties. Good luck!

She said he likes all sorts of different things thats why she is not setting a theme but I will ask her what color plates and such she is using.

You could make a two teired round or square cake with a solid color icing and then add different colored dots, stripes or 3's. EX. blue icing with yellow, green, red shapes. And then change the second layer up with the same colors scheme. And maybe make a loop bow or a BIG 3 to put on top. Or cut out the childs name in fondant and let it dry and set it up against the cake at the bottom. Or you could make sugar cookies for that instead of fondant.

You don't give us much to work with as far as size, shape etc you need.
I would make many different fonts/style of '3's and cut out the child's name as starcitycakes said. Maybe make the name out of rolls (snakes) of fondant rather than cut it.

Thank you starcitycakes you have me a great idea to present to her.

Kakeladi I know I'm not giving much to work with but neither is the customer if I had more info I would have posted it thats why I needed the help I asked her all sorts of questions and all I got was she isn't doing him a theme & she is tired of walmart cakes she wants something different so I think I am going to present starcitycakes idea to her it sounds different without having to throw in a theme. I asked her what color plates and such she was going to use but she hasn't responded yet.
