what kind of cereal does he like? I'd use real cereal on top of a cake shaped like a bowl with icing for milk.

Mornin', if you google cereal bowl cake, you'll find several tutorials...some looked like they were baked in oven proof bowls and one of them started life as a bundt cake (you'd have to build up the low spots).  Whether you use fondant or buttercream, I think a darker colored bowl (like the blue one) will give a better contrast between the "milk" and the bowl.

I made a bowl of mac 'n cheese cake and baked the cake in a 1.5 qt glass bowl.  I think that would make the perfect size cereal bowl.

AWhat size pan? Well, how much cake do you need? Is there a serving amount you're needing? Wilton has serving charts that can help you figure out what size pan you'll need.

AI don't think the bowl should be way out of proportion to a normal bowl... You could always do the box of cereal out of cake for more servings

AIf you use real cereal, I'd suggest you do a practice run the same number of hours before. A local grocery store offers donuts with fruity pebbles and I fell to the temptation of the bright colors. They'd absorbed moisture and were soggy and disappointing. However, his cereal is sturdier and may be fine.
