Here is a cake that symbolizes the life of a teenage boy. It has dragons, basketball and video games all showcased on cake.
This is a two tier French vanilla cake with a sculpted half basketball on top, also cake. It is covered in a buttercream fondant. There are 3 gum paste discs surrounding the cake with a hand drawn dragon on each one.
Happy Birthday is written in Chinese across the front, used to tie in the dragons. The bottom tier is adorned with two Xbox controllers, made from fondant.
The cake is finished with a gum paste “16” on top.
I have not had too many requests for Sweet 16 cakes for boys, but I am so glad this one came my way. Not only was I able to create a centerpiece to celebrate this special age, but I was able to take the thee main interests in this young man’s life and showcase them for him.
I had a great time with this cake.
