LOOKING for: Need a silly boyish cake a 9 year old boy can make

joyfulheartJuly 18, 2008

He's a cub scout and they have a cake contest each year. It has to be a cake just he and dad can make together. (Dad's help needs to be minimal).

He is determined to win again this year, but we just cant find anything he can make that is unique enough, "cool" enough, and one he can do...

Here's the one they made last year and won silliest cake...

OOOh, just realized his younger brother will be entering this event this year too. (he just joined cub scouts too)

So I need lots of ideas, anything would be appreciated!

I don't guess he'd want to make a kitty litter cake? If not, check out the site below. There are 2 pages, A-Z of cakes.

Here is a link that might be useful: Cakes

How about a cake that looks like something it isn't?

Like what if it looked like a bowl of spaghetti? You could pipe the noodles out of icing. Chocolate cake balls for meatballs?

Or I saw a Aprils fools thing that had a slice of chocolate cake as a slice of meatloaf with red sauce (icing) as ketchup and a pile of mashed potatoes that was made out of some cream type thing. Gravy was caramel syrup. Maybe you make a table of food - meatloaf, mashed potatoes, peas?

Also, how about a cake that looks like some futuristic engine? It could be black with all types of tubes and wires coming out of it.

I would also think anything gross would be appealing to kids that age. A face with snot coming out the nose? Eww, I know.

The cake from last year is great!

Maybe a cake, or cakes, arranged to look like burgers on a grill?

Here's a pic of a cake I made. It's SIMPLE, more assembly than baking.

Easy Hamburger Cake
1 package yellow or golden cake mix
1 package brownie mix (any size)
Container of non-dairy whipped topping (thawed)

Sesame seeds
Yellow food coloring

  1. Bake cake according to package directions in 2, 8" or 9" round pans. Sprinkle one pan with sesame seeds during last few minutes of baking.
  2. Bake Brownies according to package directions in same size pans.
  3. Let cool few minutes then invert onto racks to cool completely.
  4. Peel kiwi and slice (for 'pickles')
  5. Slice Strawberries (for 'tomatoes')
  6. Tint non-dairy topping with yellow food coloring (for mustard)
  7. Before serving assemble with yellow cake for bottom bun, brownie for meat, top with fruit, then whipped topping, and the other yellow cake (with the seeds). I assembled my cake about 5 hours before serving and refrigerated it.
