Over the Hill 02
Over the Hill 01

I made this over the hill cake for my husband's 40th birthday. I knew from the start that I wanted to go with the "old" theme. I made this cake in a 1/2 sheet cake pan and used a ball shaped pan for the "hill". The cake itself is a triple chocolate cake and the icing is all buttercream.
I let the cake cool completely and dirty iced the 1/2 sheet cake with a thin coat of white buttercream. I then attached 1/2 of the ball cake and dirty iced it.
I used leaf green, royal blue, grey, lemon yellow gel coloring to make the grass, flowers and water and background. I then mixed brown gel coloring with black to make the dark black for the border, road and flowers.
I iced 1/2 of the over the hill cake with the green and the other 1/2 with the grey. The idea was for the "young side" to appear sunny, happy and cheerful and the "old side" to appear...well death like.:-)
I made the road signs out of wooden ice cream spoons and thick copy paper (obviously not edible). The fish in the pond were gummy fish and the fishing pole was a lollipop stick with dental floss attached. The shovel was also an ice cream spoon.
The wreath was made using red and black mini silk roses and black netting and appeared to be "lying across the grave (not edible). The headstone was a Nutter Butter cookie iced with white buttercream icing and "engraved" with black icing.
I actually cut a "grave" out of the cake and used the crumbles to create the fresh grave look! The road I decorated to look smooth and new on the "young side" and old and broken up to match the "old side".
It was a fun cake to make and he loved it!!!

This was a combination birthday party for family members ages 50, 65 and 75.
To make these over the hill birthday cakes, I used a 3D bear cake pan. I froze the cakes. While they were frozen, I carefully cut the ears, tail and nose off the bears. I used some of the cut pieces to make the noses. Then I just decorated the cakes to resemble my relatives.
I supplemented the cakes with a plain circle cake wishing a Happy Birthday. Sadly they refused to cut the "people cakes," and only cut up the small plain cake.
Each birthday boy took home his own cake!
