Hello everybody,
I have got a request to do this theme cake for a one year old boy! I have no clue how to go about it! First of all what does this mean and can anybody here please help me out with some ideas for cake here?!!
The cake is for 30 people and she wants two tiered cake.

Thanks so much in advance!

more complete quote (poem) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Are_Little_Boys_Made_Of%3F

so exactly that....
'
snails, puppies, bits and pieces of "treasures" a boy would find and stuff in the pocket (only for mom to discover when doing the laundry -- oh my! a frog!"

celebrating all things "boy" -- old fashioned kick the can, play in the mud, rope swing over the swimmin' hole, snakes, and pirate forts and.....

a more innocent time sadly stolen by modern society and technology.

It's a nursery rhyme: What are little boys made of, snakes and snails and puppy dog tails. What are little girls made of, sugar and spice and everything nice.

What about a tiered cake with anything and everthing boys like. Sports, dogs, snakes, frogs, mus puddles, etc...Make the bottom tier green like the ground and the top blue then decorate.

Hi,

I just uploaded a snakes, snails and puppy dog tails cake to my profile that I made a couple months ago. It has fondant decorations around the sides and baby shoes on top.

This was the theme for my Daughter's Baby Shower, and my Grandson's bedroom. If you look in my photo you can see what I came up with. I hope you come up with something.
