Cool Cakes: 40th Birthday Cake

It’s fun to (politely) tease people as they get older…especially if they’re older than you! 
Why we love it:
  • Ok, so 40 isn’t actually that old (I say that as I’m not far away from the big 40!), but this cake is actually funny because it’s a gross exaggeration. If you presented an 80-year-old with this cake, somehow it wouldn’t be so funny…
  • It’s so realistic! Not sure of the technique they’ve used to write on the cake, but it’s very clear and neat! 
  • The actual cake shape is quite simple – just three round layers (which would feed a few people). Three layers also mean you could have three different cake flavours, or even a gluten-free portion to cater for all guests. The effectiveness is in the decoration.
  • This cake appears to be for a man, but you could modify it for a woman.   
How would you feel if you received a cake like this?
