Theme for 7 year old boy???

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Outta my comfort zone here. Anyone with a 7 year old boy who could clue me in to a few suggestions?

 

Actually, I am a Wilton instructor, and a student asked (BEGINNER!), so simple is a key....

 

Gotta love them--- one class and they are ready to do a cake.... Oh, and not just the stars over the character cake either....lol.

 

Help? Thoughts?

My 7-year-old boy likes Skylanders, Xbox, nerf/airsoft guns, fishing, skateboarding. I'm not sure how those ideas would translate into a simple cake though but hopefully it'll give you an idea of what some boys like.

thanks... just looking for what's "new"... raised 4 sons, but "baby" will be 23 next week.... so I am "out" of it, for sure.

 

I am really at a loss.... and have no idea what she may think is "good". I tried the Disney "Cars" wilton character pan...."no".

I've recently made a few for boys around age - pirates are always good, or what about Sonic? Or Angry Birds is something all the kids play. Here are some I made hope they inspire something for you to make for the little boy.

What about dinosaurs?  It could be as simple or as complex as you want with them.

My 11yo and 14yo nephews love Minecraft, been playing that for a couple years now. Legos is another big one they both still play with. The oldest was super into Thomas the Train as a toddler up until about 10yo or so.

My baby was 7 last month and we went for a pirate theme - I made two cakes, one to take into school and the other for his party.  Both relatively simple and the treasure chest can be filled with bought sweets!
