I need an idea for a cake for the husband of a coworker of my daughters. He is a car mechanic for the police. He will be 45. I didn't want to do a police themed cake, because I'm thinking maybe he won't like.
My son is a cop and he said he said he wouldn't want a police themed cake. And the wife just said "anything". The cake is for Monday and we have no way to get in touch with her! My daughter didn't ask about hobbies or anything.

I'm guessing something generic but I'm really at my wits end with this. Oh and she wants frosting only!

Please, any ideas will be so appreciated. Thank you!

Hi,
Do you mean she doesn't want fondant on the outisde? so just iced with something like buttercream right?
It doesn't seem like you have much to go on, no theme, no hobbies, and just frosting........ well it will have to be just a general "male" looking cake, like you said. They can't expect something grand or OTT.

How about something like this,

This looks like a male cake too,

The cake doesn't have to be white, I'd say "male" colours are blue, green & brown,

Sorry not to be more help, but there's not much to go on is there?
Good luck! icon_smile.gif
