I need some 'male' ideas for cakes. Elegant, not novelty. Thanks!

Ugh, I know what you mean!! Sometimes the cakes for guys are the worst because you don't want them to be too feminine. Here's the last one I did. The rosettes made it seem feminine to me, but it turned out decent I guess.

This is the one that surprised me! I did this chocolate heart's desire cake for a lady and honestly, it's become the runaway favorite for my male clients! Go figure!! So I make it a tad more masculine by making the cake square. Gilded rosed never struck me as very masculine, but that's what they want!!

Thanks! I'm terrible with piping - maybe I should get practising!

I've done a couple and I agree that decorating an elegant cake for a man without novelties or making it too feminine is a challenge! Here are mine:
