I'm making a cake for a wonderful 90yr old gentleman...but I don't have any new ideas. He is very low key and somewhat traditional....any info would be much appreciated!

You could look at things that were around in the year he was born

What about (excuse the terminology) an "old man" hat? What are they called? A fedora? Or a cardigan cake? Wingtip shoes? Rocking chair?

I think I would possibly reach back to the year he was born - incoporate some ideas from that year and then the other portion of the cake bring in the current year. Maybe compare a ford truck? Or you could go with the facts of the month he was born in. (example - April's flower is the daisy or sweet pea) And yes, most men arent into flowers, but you may can find something else that is a little more manly.

What about a road of life cake. Start at his birth and go all the way up to today. Their are many wonderful ones in the galleries. Good Luck.

This is more general...Cakes I make for men usually have symmetrical patterns done in darker colors; repudiative patterns of circles or squares and browns and blues.
