One Cake For Three Birthdays

by Hany

I have to make one birthday cake for three male co-workers but have no clue as to how to decorate it with their names & not make it look too feminine. I know I can count on you for a good idea. Thanks.

One Cake For Three
by: Michelle (admin)

Hi Hany,

OK, so here's what I'm thinking about your one birthday cake for three male co-workers.

The effect we're after here is a patch of grassy earth with with three gardening stakes that show the names of the birthday boys.
Follow the directions for the golf cake, found < a href="">here, leaving out the golf ball (unless all three of your co-workers are golf fans, then it's perfect as is!). Hand write or print out three small (about 2" x 3") tags with "Happy Birthday...(insert name)" and stick them to a kabob skewer so they can be inserted into the cake. Use the paper from a brown paper bag if you have one.

The techniques used in this cake are super easy but you get a fantastic finished cake that's perfect for a man. To really make it memorable, present it on a large, newspaper covered board (cover with clear contact paper so you don't end up eating soggy newsprint...yuk!) and add some gardening gloves and a clean trowel beside the cake. You could also add a small galvanized bucket with the gardening stake 'names' next to the cake instead of inserting them into the cake.

Also, you really can't go wrong with food cakes, like this great Hamburger Cake or Pizza Cake.

Hopefully these ideas have been helpful. If I can answer any other questions for you, please let me know. Thanks for taking the time to write. I love to hear from my visitors!
