Ok, I have an old coworker that asked me to make his birthday cake. He has given NO insight as to what this cake should look like. Well, he said half a sheet sized. Uh, that doesnt really tell me much.
I know thats not a lot to go on, but I have NO clue where to even begin. Did I mention that he wants this cake tomorrow?!
How about something like this?
Oh wow, those shirts are awesome! I would love to have the chance to do something like that. I don't think they will fit with this guy though He's in his lower 30s, no kids, no wife. He's a laid back kind of guy, he's fun and loves to hang out and party. Thanks for suggesting something though, I really appreciate it, and will definitely try that one day.
think retro dots, stripes, balloons and streamers.
I'm with the retro dots and circles.....always looks effective.
Oh my bad. In your post you said a old coworker. Here are some masculine cakes that you can try to incorporate into a sheet cake.
what about something like this, it's simple but masculin and i mean who doesn't like ganache! it's by cc member "springlakecake" who also does them with fruit on top. yum!
How about chocolate cake? Most guys enjoy chocolate cake. At least in my family they sure do.
Heres a link to one I make off and on for friends and family get togethers. Its choco cake, choco BC & choco ganache with choc dipped fruit & choco cut outs. Easy to play around with, just add whatever fruit is in season.
PattyT, I love that cake. I'm putting it in my favs. I could always use a nice masculine cake to save. Coming up with inspiration for men/ teen boys are not as easy as cakes for girls/women.
I soooo agree yummy. This cake is fabulous PattyT!! it's definitely going into my favs!!!
I knew i went to the right place. I ended up doing a cake similar to Patty's. Mine didn't look nearly as good, but it was ok for a last minute cake. Thanks guys. The pic is in my photos (dont know how to attach it here.)
Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I agree with yummy about having trouble with cakes for men.
d925marie - you did a great job with the birthday cake! I also enjoyed looking at your pictures. Your cupcake tower was adorable, and my hubby the golfer would love your golf cake.
