Default "Different" birthday cake?

Lol that's what my dad asked for this year. One year he wanted carrot cake so I made carrot cake,which was good,but come to find out,it was actually spice cake he REALLY liked so I made that the next year. I was going to make spice cake this year with caramel icing..he said it would be fine but also mentioned wanting something "different" any ideas?

I've made a banana cake for the last few years for the kids, and it's always the first flavor to get eaten up! I have to go change a diaper, but I can look for the recipe if you're interested. I just use a regular chocolate BC icing on it, but it would be tasty w/ ganache. That might not be different enough though!

We love lemon cake here.

Also pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing is yummy.

I have a rum cake for my birthday, and dd5.5 requested it for her birthday this year, too. (She's gf and I made my rum cake gf last year, and it was *by far* the best gf cake we've yet managed to produce in this house .)

Rum cakes are *awesome* . I used to be a chocolate-or-nothing kind of girl, and despite it having not a lick of chocolate, I've been choosing rum cakes for the past four years .

I make something called 'dirt cake'. It tastes like cookies and cream ice cream. The 'cookies' part is crushed up oreos and you can put it together in a way that makes it look like potting soil and do a 'fall garden' theme or something. Just let me know if you want the recipe.

chocolate éclair cake?

You layer graham crackers with French vanilla pudding mixed with coolwhip or whipped cream. You make it 24 hours in advance and frost it with a very dark chocolate icing. Then when you let it sit the graham crackers get soft. It's super yummy! There are recipes online if you google it.

that 2 ingredient spice cake and can of pumpkin cake?
my mother in law really liked lemonade cake with cool whip frosting as something fresh and different.

our cakes are always different, because my kids don't like cake lol. Rice krispie treats in the shape of a cake with fruit roll up decorations is a hit. or skin a watermelon and stick grapes and other fruit on it instead.

Default Re: "Different" birthday cake?

How different is he talking? Because you could do this:

Bake two meat loaves in 8" round cake pans. Drain, cool, and refrigerate for up to 2 days. On his birthday, whip up a large batch of mashed potatoes, using enough liquid to make them fluffy-creamy. Meanwhile, reheat the meat loaves. Fill and frost them with the hot mashed potatoes, just like a cake. Pipe ketchup on top for the words. Serve additional mashed potatoes in scoops as "ice cream," with dark gravy "caramel sauce."

For dessert, serve a pound cake sliced and filled with colored frosting as "grilled cheese sandwiches;" you can even brown them briefly in the oven before filling. Serve cut-up papaya "fries" on the side with raspberry coulis "ketchup."
