I have been asked to create a cake for a party celebrating 4 birthdays.  It is a small party (20ish) so I can't do multiple layers.  I need to find someway to incorporate multiple themes into one cake, or find one overall theme.   Here is the client's description:

One guy is turning 48. Another is turning 20 another is 25 and one girl is 22. Yikes I know! They r a musically inclined family. Two r students and the girl is a model.


It isn't a lot to go on but it is for a friend and I would really like to make her an amazing cake.

Thanks for any advice :)

I would probably suggest doing 4 really small cakes. If you did 4  6-inch round cakes, you could give them each something individual and not have to worry about doing something that pleases them all. Plus it'll be just a little over 20 servings anyway. If you'd rather not to that, stick to something more generic like a party themed birthday cake with stripes and dots. :) haha.


Good luck and happy caking!

I like the idea of multiple cakes for each person. 


I can only suggest what first came to my mind:  Do one/two tiers to look like piano keys and/or musical notes (more masculine in black & white as a nod to the men) and maybe a smaller top tier with various black silouettes of a young girl posing placed on the sides - sillouettes are easy to find on google and then use them as your stencils  - a tribute to the young lady.   Not sure what you would put on top!  HTH

Oops! I just saw that you aren't interested in doing tiers - my apologies!  I still think you could use piano keys along the sides or edge, add musical notes and maybe a black silhouette in each corner at a diagonal.  My creativity is very limited!  Please share the cake when you have completed!

I asked for more details and it turns out the whole family is also very techy (more then musical) so I think I am going to do an iPad cake with different apps for each person... what do you think?  I seem to be experience creative-cake block lol.
