My neighbor called me this morning and ask me if I can make a cake for her mother in law's 65th birthday.  All she said was to do something funny.  I have no ideas and don't even know what her mother in law is interested in.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

I don´t know if something like that works but I really like this cake, i saw it here on CC, it was for an 50th but I´m sure that works perfect for a 65th birthday  , but I thing that you should ask more about that lady so She     would´nt get ofended    http://pinterest.com/pin/377598749977008258/   thumbs_up.gif

Humor is very subjective - I think the depends cake is hilarious, but for my mother-in-law who actually has to wear them due to a chronic condition, it would be awful. I also love the humor of that hallmark character, "Maxine" for an older woman, she has some funny lines. Whatever you choose, just be sure to run it by your neighbor first to make sure you're on the same page.

You could do a clock cake. Most of them are for retirement cakes but you don't have to say retirement on them. On each hour they write something like for example at 12=sleep 1=eat2=relax 3 do nothing 4 shopping, you get the idea. You can look under yahoo and search retirement clock cakes just to get the idea of how to do it.

 

I also saw one clock that said on it "Who cares"? and it was a clock but all the numbers on the clock were sort of scattered around the bottom in random numbers, not in any particular order as if to say the person can do as they please any time of the day.

 

I really don't have too many other ideas but I am sure others on this site will have better ideas than me. Hopefully you will come up with something better.

Good luck/Mary

You could try something similar to this cake, make an old lady on her seat or in a bed, teeth in a glass on the side, a few of her fav things about the sofa/bed? That would go down well I recon :)

 

This was a great fun little 8x4 inch sofa cake. Since the figures would make up such a big part of a slice I used 100% modelling choc so that they tasted good :) The story is that Dad falls asleep eating his peanuts and the dog waits by the chair to lick the salt off his fingers when his arm flops down!

I'm with the others, you MUST get more information from your neighbor about what her MIL thinks is "funny".  Good luck, and Welcome to the Forum!  Please show us a photo when you get the cake done.
