MAN OF ALL TRADES FLYING SMALL FIXED WING PLANES LOVES FISHING GARDENING A BEER OR 2 ETC

What about a gnome figure sitting with a fishing pole dangling into a pond with a beer beside it and maybe a plane overhead. Sort of thing, sorry not very good at describing what I mean can visualise it though.

For family friends 70th he had a cake with a transferred photo (that was edible) of him fishing. (A bit like the transfers you can buy on here - they are good to use too if you are stuck). Maybe a visit to cake decorating shop/ or $2 shop and get some bits and pieces together to decorate as above.

My father was a farmer so we put a plastic farmyard set with sheep etc and a chocolate sheep on a stick.

That sounds a bit Genghis Khan :-0

It's a bit boring compared to some of the ideas above but I decorated my father-in-law's cake with a bright coloured icing and found a wide masculine patterned ribbon which I 'wrapped' the top of the cake with and attached a matching bow on top - so it ended up looking like a present.

Actually turn it into "This is your Life" theme using this example.

Can use either pics or "3D" images and could be very effective. just a lot of work artistic wise though. but possibilities are great.

The other reason is why wait until he has gone to state the nice things, do it now.

Cheeerssss.
