For my husband’s 40th birthday party I decided to go with an Over the Hill theme. I searched and searched for ideas for cakes and this is what I came up with. This cake is 2 layers of 9 by 13 cakes. After the second layer was placed, I cut out a small rectangular piece for the grave. Because I made sure that It was chocolate cake, it already looked like it was lined with dirt.

I lined the outside of the cake with chocolate covered cookies and used the Wilton icing tip #233 for the grass and brown sugar for the base of the grave and the pile of dirt. The coffin was the same chocolate cookies covered in black fondant. Everyone at the party were very amused and got quite a kick out of the Over the Hill cake and it was quite easy.
