need cake idea for 16 year old boy

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A friend ask me to make his son's 16th birthday cake for this coming Saturday. I ask him what he wanted and he said he was leaving it up to me. I ask if he had any special interest or hobbies I could focus on and he didn't. I'm not sure what would work. With girls you can do so many things, colorful, bows, zebra stripes etc....but boys. I have son's but they don't like cake.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

What about a driver's license? Or a car? Keys?

I thought about that. I did that for a 16 year old that failed his drivers test earlier that day.

Oh no...I understand why you're wary. What about a computer? Or an IPad/IPhone?

The ubiquitous teenage gender neutral accessory- a cell phone.

What about a sport/sports or a sports team?

Thanks everybody for the great ideas. I apparently had a major brain fart.

i see you are from alabama, does he hunt? one of my most popular for men and boys is a shot gun shell (a 16 guage in this case).

picture it....4 - 6" round cakes cut in half to make a semi-circle, you now have 8. stand them up with the cut edge on the board, frost the flat semi-circle side and stand up another to make a 3-d half cylinder. i crumb coat mine, then butercream it thick, drag a toothed frosting comb to make ridges. cut some gold/brass colored fondant to make the brass part of the shell, cover the end and paint with luster dust. use a flat tip to make the pleated end of the shell. do the lettering on the shell casing and on the brass end and your done.
