Cake decorations? For a guy?
I'm making a birthday cake for a guy, and wondering what I could do to decorate it. I have piping bags and tips, but am by no means a master of piping.
It's going to be a large sheet cake, which is why I'm having troubles. A 9-inch round cake, no problem. But this is a vast space.
The other thing is, I'm not certain whether to go chocolate or non-chocolate. I see a lot of cool decorations in chocolate, but he tends to prefer lemony desserts, so I might go white/lemon. And I haven't seen any light decorations that aren't feminine or even bridal.
Anyone have any suggestions? I'm willing to do a bit of work, but I am not Wilton-trained.
