Coming up with fresh cake ideas for masculine cakes is always a challenge. Now to add to that challenge...I can't use anything except buttercream and piping gel. SO, does anybody have some masculine cake ideas that I can do on a slab cake with limited supplies and tools? Other than balloons, streamers and dots, I am drawing a blank. Pictures would be even better than verbal descriptions, but I welcome any help. A big THANK-YOU to anyone who takes the time to help!

Is it for a specific person or are you jsut looking for ideas?
Simple pictures like bicycles and flowers would work for some men depending on their hobbies/occupations...
Otherwise stripes/check and text should be options....

Go to and click on "pattern locator" on left side of page.

Search by theme or whatever--these patterns make fabulous buttercream transfers.

Pipe basketweave or something else textured on sides of cakes. Pipe rope borders top and bottom.
