My partner celebrates his 40th b/dy this NY Eve: I wanted to do a novelty cake that combines both. I don't want it to be anything to do with drinking or sport. He doesn't have any hobbies in particular, so I'm a bit stuck. I'd love to hear some of your ideas for something original - I'm happy to do a stacked/whimsical cake if the theme is right. So please, chuck some ideas around and help me out folks!
Thanks in advance
Maybe you could incorporate fireworks into the design. Perhaps wired and attached to the cake. Those were just the first things that came to mind. Have fun!
I love black, white and silver for NYE...it's and easy "theme" for a bday party too.
Geometric shapes in fondant keeps it feeling masculine, and get one of those "sparkler" handheld firework/candle for the topper...light it while you're all singing Happy Birthday!
