This is my dilemma... I have made it a tradition to make homemade birthday cakes for my sons birthday. The first year I made a bear and it turned out great. The second year I made a race car and it turned out great. This year I am absolutely stumped as to what I should make him.

He's into so many things right now I really don't have one solid plan for a theme. Arghh!

Here's pics of his first two cakes.





Any ideas?

What sort of things is he into? Maybe you could do a multi-theme cake. Like if he is into pirates and dinosaurs; you could make a pirate dinosaur cake!

I have done a pirate theme.. the cake was a treasure chest with treasure spilling out.  The other neat one I remember was a ufo cake.  It was a large circle cake for the base and then I baked one in a bowl to invert on the top.  Skittles for windows, grey icing.....  

A great place for ideas is the family fun magazine web site.

That would be pretty cool. Or just a dinosaur cake. Or Pirates. I made my little sister a Winnie-the-Pooh cake once, you could try one of his favorite characters. If he's into Spiderman you could make a web.

Make sure to show us what you come up with!

Okay, I have to ask if the little bears were made from small silicone bear pans.

Secondly, your cakes are beautiful!

Does he like legos? I saw an awesome Lego cake somewhere and they included individual Lego cakes for everyone. That might be too simple for your amazing abilities...I've also seen some pretty complex construction site cakes.

Good luck!

You should get a GIANT cupcake cake pan! I have one and it's awesome! That would be an easy peasy one and very showy. He would love it!

OMG! I Love the giant cup cake!!! I am seriously going to look into it. Cheesy

Thanks so much for all of the comments!

The little bear cakes were made out of a cupcake pan my mom found at a garage sale. I think they were made by Wilton. The actual bear mold is still made, but the one I used for my sons 1st birthday was the same one my mom used for mine. The car was a Wilton mold too.

Thanks again for all the help. Cheesy
