AI am making a small 8" fruit cake for a gentleman turning 80. No particular hobbies so a bit stumped for ideas re decoration. The decoration will be fondant over marzipan. Any thoughts welcome. Many thanks
google images "80th birthday cakes for men" lots of pictures there.
And it doesn't have to be that big, I know you're doing a small cake, it was just the colours and pattern that caught my eye. It's something I'd make for my dad.
ALove the striped one - will give this some thought. Many Thanks Nadiaa and everyone for your suggestions - gets the old gray matter going thank goodness
How about a cake that looks like a Victrola?
When my Dad turned 80 I did a knight attacking a dragon (my avatar) on a pile of gold with a scroll saying, 'From the Mists of Time, Sir Charles, A legend in the Making'. ( I needed to allude to how awsome he is but also how ancient he is getting, whilst still allowing him to get even older and even better). I put an 80 on the knight's shield.
ACazza, I always wondered what your avatar was!! :)
