18th Birthday Cake for a male! - Page 2

post #16 of 26

Lets keep it nice and non-judgy, everyone.  This thread has been flagged and I've gotten 2 separate PMs about it.  I don't see the fuss, so if ya'all can't get along it'll just be deleted.

You could make him a 007 cake, or, a big #1 and a #8 on a covered cake board and make each number a different flavor with a different filling sort of like this one:

Oh my God. Regret cake? Whatever was about to happen must be truly evil.”

I apologize for my not nice words and I'm sure you were just kidding, it just took me off guard.

 

Take care

Thanks for the apology.  Not sure if it matters, but by "girlie" cake, I was referring to those giant cakes where the real girl pops out (which I think might only exist on TV).  Hence, the funny.  I didn't think anyone would mistake that for actual advice.

 

Anyway, lest I be accused of not offering anything helpful aside from (attempted) humor... There have been some great suggestions in this thread already.  I particularly think a hamburger cake is pretty broad and likely to please.  But, let me also suggest the possibility that there may be no living 18-year males currently located on the planet Earth that don't enjoy videogames.  (For the record, that's a joke, too--there's probably one kid out there spending all of this time whittling, or something).

 

Seriously, though, I worked as a background investigator for over ten years, and when asking the friends of young men entering the military what their hobbies were, I heard "videogames" 99.9% of the time.  It's reaching the critical mass of music or sports, truly.  Anyway, if the mother is willing, see if she can just ask what her son's favorite videogame is.  Or, take a look at his game shelf and find out the name of the game with the most beaten-up box.  That could provide a really fun topic for a cake, particularly if you do sculpted cakes.

 

Just a thought.  Good luck with it.

And he probably whittles video game controllers wistfully while wishing he had a real one. :)

Crezart, you would have to click on the person's id name then you would be able to go and click on all her cake pictures. That is how I saw the cake she made which was very nice for an 18 year old boy. She did a good job. Some people insert the video/picture in the thread they are using and others just post pictures on gallery.

I found it comical as well :)

 

I agree with argyle, or stripes always work well for males.

A gift/present looking cake works well too.
