Hey everyone.....
Just wanted to quickly say first, that I just love looking at all the pics in the gallery, it is absolutely so wonderful to see the ideas of cake decorating and how everyone goes outside the box and comes up with just wonderful decorations!

Next thing,,, uuhmm,, I sorta have a "idea blockage" at the moment. I have to do a little boy B-day cake, he's going to be 10. The father gave me open ability to create, but didn't give me any specialty that the little one likes. All I was told was to just make sure the cake is chocolate.

Does anyone have any good ideas that will help me to make this cake "pop".
I have been looking in the B-day galleries and so far, for me, nothing is popping at me.
I ask this because it was the "father" who requested this cake and I'm sure the mommy will be really looking at how this cake turns out, etc.. so I really want to make this cake "pop".

Any and all ideas are most most appreciated!

Can you ask the mom what her son's favorite things are? There are so many different things they can be wild about at that age, it would be good to have some general idea.

There isn't really anything that ALL 10 year old boys like, is there? The only things I can come up with are sports and music. If you get absolutely no information, maybe you could make a cake in the colors of the popular local sports team, or maybe an iPod cake. Those seem to be really popular for any age group. HTH!

Yes, I just spoke with the mommy and she said the little one, likes anything.
I asked "anything in specific", didn't get a specific fav.

So far, I like the skateboard idea.... Please keep those ideas coming please.. I most graciously appreciate it!!!

Happy Baking! icon_lol.gif

Is the birthday around Halloween? You could do a haunted birthday cake if it was.

Hi Everyone!!!

Well, I must say Thank you to everyone who replied back on ideas to help me!

It looks like I'm going to go with the skateboard cake!

Now, I do have just one more Q... as for the cake itself, do you all make a 2 layer cake or just a one layer and cut it to 2 layer and fill?

This is gonna be soooooo cool to do! I can't wait to get this project done!
I will post pics once it's all done!
Will check back later today on the cake itself thing........

Thank you again fellow CC'ers for the wonderful ideas!!!!!!!!!!
