I mean, seriously? A skateboard on your birthday cake at age 21. Did the numbers get reversed or something? Are you sure he’s not 12? Come on man, get a car. That’a a nice looking board actually. I’ve seen a quite a few crappy skateboard birthday cakes on the interwebs, but this one’s got class. Google barfed up this link from Elaine’s Expression. I’m jealous… of the cake and the fact that he’s turning 21. Skateboard cake cornucopia after the jump.
The “Spiffy Skateboard Cake” is a how-to found on Disney Family Fun. The wheels are chocolate snack food doughnuts. Homer Simpson approved, and DaddyYo supplied.
This is a 5″ tall Cake topper from 1979 made by a company called Wilton. There were a handful of these on eBay, and surprisingly, I don’t own one. He looks creepy, like he’s wearing a mask made from the flesh of another kid.
This wedding cake topper cost $60 from Fun Wedding Things. Well, we know that $3.99 covered the expense of buying a Tech Deck, that leaves about $56 for the actual topper. I love it when “crafts” people slap a store bought fingerboard on a preexisting item to give it skateboard appeal. I ran across an eBay auction like this recently. Someone had glued a loose skateboard from a McDonald’s Happy Meal onto a Troll doll and was passing it off as a factory issue. I’ve got a handful of loose Kermit the Frog skateboards from the 80′s Happy Meal toys floatig around my house, so it was instantly recognizable. For some reason everyone seems to lose the Kermit figure. And thanks to DaddyYo for this tip.
If you are in a bind, you can order this customized skateboard cake delivered overnight. Kind of blah though. What would you expect from a place with an imaginative name like the Chocolate Bakery.
The Oriental Trading Company has this edible inkjet printed skateboard graphic.
Hey, it’s the Gonz at some art show… how strange. Thanks to Seth Levy for the tip. I think he sent me a link to the event, but I lost it. Maybe he’ll read this. Photo “courtesy of” Brokensquare on FLickr.
