I made this for a customer.  His friend, Lucky, is turning 30 and evidentilly, that's over the hill.  :0)  Yellow base round, chocolate top round (so the hole looks like real dirt).  Fondant head, arms/hands & feet (can't see feet) with buttercream clothes, hair & facial features.  Everything else is BC too.

I just wanted to add this picture, because I was searching this site for an example of a 30th birthday cake for a man, and couldn't find one that I could use.  Most of the cakes were for women, or were very elaborate & this cake only needed to serve 7 & also had to travel with my friend for an hour in the car.... so, I hope this helps someone in the future, to find a simple idea!  =)

I made this for a customer who was having his party at a club in DC, so needed it to feed 75+.  This was an 12X18 base with an 11X14 top tier.  All marble cake.  Silver dragees used and the rest is buttercream.  The champagne bottles are plastic and the ribbon is real ribbon.

A lot of people at the party didn't realize the cake is supposed to look like it's falling over (it was for a 30th birthday party).  Although I like how it turned out in the is not at all what I envisioned.  The frosting would not cooperate in the humidity.  Bottom layer (10") is yellow cake with strawberry filling, middle layer (8") is chocolate cake with oreo cream filling, top layer (6") is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting filling.  Frosted in chocolate bc w/ fondant luster dusted stars

I realized after the cake left me that I forgot the d in birthday.  But the customer loved it.  The numbers we cut from a sheet cake.  They were a pain to ice though.  The curls on the corners are fondant.

I made this for my sister-in-laws 30th. She loves music and dancing and is a bit out there so I thought this would suit her!! She loved it!

This cake is for a co-worker who turns 30 on on the 10th. My fiance really helped with the concepts. It is so morbid though that I kept laughing after a little while... I bought the grave stones from a party supply store they are department 56.

This is the cake design for the winner of the cake certificate that I submitted to my work's JDRF 2006 Silent Auction Fundraiser. The winner wanted it made for a surprise 30th birthday party. It is white cake, strawberry filling, and chocolate buttercream.

Apparently, a Miller High Life 30-pack is called a "dirty 30".  Woman ordered this for her fiance's birthday "dirty 30" party.

I made this for my good friend's 30th birthday party.  The bottom is vanilla cake with cookies & cream filling, buttercream icing and the top is mocha chocolate chip cake with cream cheese filling and frosting.  MMF and buttercream decorations and bobbles.  Lots of fun to make!

30th birthday cake, "Almost over the hill".  12" strawberry cake with strawberry filling and buttercream frosting on the bottom.  Hill cake was using a wonder mold with chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream frosting.  Fondant figure.  I ran out of time so I didnt get to pipe Happy Birthday on the cake.

For a couple of girls at work who thought turning 30 was old, I created the over the hill cake using dolls instead of icing, so that they'd have a reminder afterwards of the event. So now they'll know what it's like to be buried alive. :)

8" white and choc. cake w/ cookies and cream filling. Totally stole the idea from jenncowin (Thank you!). I've never had sushi so had to kind of guess what the different components were. The sushi rolls are twinkies wrapped in MMF. All other pieces made from MMF. Cake frosted in BC. 
Thanks for looking!

This cake was requested for an 'over the hil' 30th birthday party.  I didn't want to do an actual 'over the hill' theme since she's only 30, so I did a variation on the black and white theme.  I then used accent colors that were in the napkins to be used at the party.

Cake for my friends 30th Birthday.  Dark chocolate cake with whipped topping frosting and chocolate buttercream decorations.  My 3 year old helped by putting the candles on.  (He loves to help me decorate!)  My friend called me next day and raved about the cake and the frosting and asked for the recipes.  I must have done something right!  lol

10" triple chocolate layer and 10" vanilla layer filled and iced with buttercream.  All decorations made with fondant.  This was for a lady that is an avid scrapbooker and crafter.  A fun cake to make.

This was made before I found out about the wonderful smoothing trick of Viva! :-) My brother-in-law was 
sensitive about turning 30, so this is what I came up with. It's an 11x15 Funfetti cake with vanilla buttercream.
I used a press-set for the lettering, but I think I like free-handing better.

All buttercream frosting on a chocolate cake with whipped chocolate ganache filling.  I had a hard time deciding on a design/color scheme that was a little more masculine but love how this cake turned out!

made this cake for a friend of my mom's.  My mom wanted a "29 and holding" party for someone unhappy about turning 30.  My first attempt to make this kind of cake with the help of a CC member, Kim C.  (Sorry I don't know your username.)

This is a full sheet cake with the 30 cut from a 1/4 sheet.  The theme of the party was 30 is the new 20.  I thought it was a really fun cake.  Icing that 30 sure was difficult though!  Thanks for looking

Next time I do a cake with double figures, I MUST remember to leave enough of a gap between the two numbers so I can pipe the shells around the bottom!  I was hanging over this cake at all sorts of angles!

This is the same cake that I uploaded the other day but with a new icing job. I learned the hard way that when you put fondant on whipped icing the fondant turns to a puddle. I re-cied the same cake with green BC instead of white whipped icing, a better variation for my sister after all since her favorite color is green! Banana Creme cake anyway, is very good!

10" round 2-layer marble cake with buttercream icing.  Made this for a group 30th birthday bash.  The icing started bulging about halfway through the party, so we ate that side first!  Thanks for looking.

After 30 years of marriage, hubby and I thought we could go out for a dinner, just the two of us.  With 7 kids we don't get out much.  Puppy had an allergic reaction to a shot and it took all night to nurse him back.  There is always the 31st. Anniversary.  Anyway, this was a quick cake.  6" Chocolate fudge cake with BC icing on the bottom layer, and 3"  chocolate fuge cake with strawberry filling for the top layer.   All BC frosting.

I made this cake for a close friend of mine. I was one of my biggest challenges yet, as it was a 14" cake.  Although it is very simple. I
am pleased with how i piped the writing. And the model on the
cake is meant to look like my friend. I was very pleased with the 
model as that is the first one i've ever done.
