80th birthday cake for man.....sheet cake

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have to do a full sheet cake for an 80th celebration for my neighbor man.
His family has requested something very simple....as he nor they are very froo-froo at all. ( he puts you to mind of somebody who would be considered a grumpy old man. lol!
I am stumped. Any ideas would be very appreciated.
So many of us are failing to live our dreams simply because we are living our fears.

I often get "stage fright" when it comes to sheet cakes and men's cakes...so the two together could be paralyzing!!! I always try to make it so much harder than it has to be.

However, if they are expecting simple, what about doing an oval in the middle of the cake for the greeting with a simple little border. Then in the left over open space make some polka dots (greens & blues) and some spirals. Add a nice clean border around the top and bottom and Voila....cake for a grumpy old man.

Good luck!
