I need to find some boyish cakes that are simple enough for boys to make for a cake decorating contest.  They're supposed to do as much of the work as possible (I do the oven stuff to keep them from being burned, but otherwise it's all them)  So it does have to be easy but I really want something DIFFERENT.

Does anyone have pics or ideas for us?

Thank you so much!

This is what one of them did last year for cub scouts and won silliest

In my daughter's Junoir year of HS she had to make a brain out of food. Her's was picked best and she got 10 extra credit points.

She used the baseball cake mold and cute one piece on half for half a brain, so she used 1/4 of the cake. She used a round tip to frost in a brain design kind of way.

We went to the mall candy store. I can't think of the name!!  Undecided  She picked out several differant types of candy for the parts.

I am not sure if we even took a picture.  I'll look and if we did, I'll post it here.

You might try: sports- baseballs, basketballs, footballs, helmets, hats, etc. Books might work- open so they could decorate two pages, or closed with a title on the front. How about gym shoes, etc. T-shirts. Cars, skateboards.
so tacky its classy

a computer key board, boom box, deodorant stick, milk carton, bird house, tool box, tackle box with worms and lures and hooks, roadkill (gross i know, but like a road with skid mar... eh i'll stop there) paint can with tray and roller, artist pallet,compost bin, grocery store shelf, a dustpan w/ the little hand broom thing. i watch a lot of ace of cakes, so some of these ideas might be more complicated for a kid than i think. i hope he has fun!! and maybe brings home a badge or 2 Wink

I saw a cake that looked like a stack of pancakes (Pan Cake, LOL) and it was hilarious!!  I always thought I should make that.
Hmmm....I have to find it now.

OK, here it is......

check the familyfun site, maybe you can get some good inspiration!

Maybe you can get some idea from here: http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/YourKids/BirthdayParties/CakesCakesCakes/ThemedCakes/

Do they enjoy molding with clay? Marzipan or fondant can easily be molded just like clay, so that can really open up some possibilities. Checker/Chess board, really any game board would work.

There are some fun flickr groups, lots of these cakes are professional or too difficult, but some aren't and some could get some ideas going. (Once in awhile there is a less than appropriate cake on there, so you may want to go and look at them without the kids first.)
