Doing a Sweet 16 birthday cake for tomorrow; it's WASC and is all planned and on its way. BUT, the mom is a chocoholic - asked if I could make it partly chocolate for her. I've decided just to do a small separate chocoloate and fudge cake for the "surviving parents of a 16 year old". Help for a really cute, witty, speedy idea for it??? (they're good friends...) Thanks!

I would make some brownie pop's with the wilton silicone mold...dipped in chocolate/white. That will give her....her chocolate fix. Maybe some sprinkles to match the colors of birthday cake, arrange in a pot to look like a bouquet of flowers.

How about making it look the crash test dummy head? Or something similar. Maybe a very large credit card from "Bank of Mom and Dad" with personalized info on it.
Good luck! I think that is a very thoughtful idea!

Would a bottle of valium be too much icon_wink.gif Very thoughtful of you to make a cake for the parents too! Hope whatever you do turns out great!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Y'ALL ARE FANTASTIC!!! What great ideas! I think I['m going to combine the credit card and the 16.75 years and maybe a pill, too...as the card's logo maybe. It looks like it's going to be a simple 9x13 - I can't believe I just made a plain old boxed mix - haven't done that in years! icon_sad.gif But, I already made this once tonight - stupid me, on autopilot, am thinking to myself that it didn't look like quite enough batter - halfway through baking I realized that I forgot to put the eggs in it! icon_redface.gificon_cry.gificon_redface.gif) At least I'll make a yummy hot fudge icing to hide the mixed cake! SOO, it's plan B for me! Thanks again for all the ideas - CCers are the best! PAT
