CANNOT come up with a theme for anyone...looked at maps of ND- almost a rectangle, boring...all suggestions welcome...I work full time M-F and a novice cake decorator so be kind...appreciate any ideas, funny even better. thanks... icon_cry.gif

What did the dad do for a living or what are his hobbies?
What do the young boys like?

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I'd do something with geometric shapes and bold colors. Guys aren't typically pastels/flowers sort of people, and without doing something individual for each guy's interest, it seems the best/easiest solution.

How about a fishing theme?....the grandfather and 2 sons could be sitting on a dock fishing together. I don't know how good you are at figures...or you could make a big fish with a hook in its mouth and a line attached if you aren't good with figure modeling. I think the fishing theme is good for men of any age

thanks to all. Wanted a separate theme for each so I am doing a cake for sons, a cake for grandpa and a cake for brother...various flavors to include a cheesecake. Hard coming up with something for all 3 but photoshopped some pics of them. Will work out ok I think.
