Office Birthday: Chuck Norris Theme

Chuck Norris Fact #84: He tastes delicious.

For a lot of birthday themes it’s easy to go to a party store and get some tiki decorations, or pirates or Harry Potter or sports teams or whatever it is you’re going for.

But when the birthday boy man is into Chuck Norris you have to work a little harder. As cool as it would be, nobody makes a Chuck Norris cake pan.

My first step was to Google for “Chuck Norris cakes”. From that I found some inspiring and sometimes insane ideas. A large fist punching out of the cake? Cool, but a bit more difficult than what I was willing to try.

I’m not a professional cake decorator and haven’t even taken the Wilton class. I’m more of a figure-it-out as you go cake maker, so that’s what I did here.

I started out with two 8″ round pans and made a Cinnamon Swirl cake, straight out of the box. I had planned to frost the whole cake, but it already had a sort of sun tanned, craggy look to it, so I left it alone for the face.

A positive message from Chuck helps everyone work a little faster.

Next, you have to have a great Chuck Norris beard, so I put on a layer of chocolate frosting in a Norrisy beard shape, then patted a combination of plain chocolate and Duff S’more Sprinkles into it for texture.

For the hair I piped on some yellow frosting with chocolate streaks, but only after I put down a stripe of green frosting for the headband. I added eyes and a mouth and in the end had a cake that almost vaguely resembled the person I was trying to make it look like.

The thing is, it doesn’t have to be perfect, or professional. In this case, it was funnier because it was so bad. But with action figure I found on eBay and old movie I got from a garage sale and “Chuck Norris Approved” signs I printed out, it got the point across, and all morning people came by to have a laugh.

And my reward for all of this? My co-worker has Chuck watching my every move.

Swiss Army Sprinkles,
Lisa

  2. What is it about Chuck Norris? I even included him in a recent post about running a 5K.

    http://themainland.net/2012/01/24/how-to-run-your-first-5k-and-live-to-run-another-one/

    Congrats on FP.

    • Thanks! Good luck with your 5K. I like to watch people run them while I eat cookies and wave 🙂

  3. … and I’m including a reference to Chuck Norris in a post I’m publishing today as well.

    What are the odds? Perhaps he’s experiencing a resurgence.

    Or maybe he never left the mainstream at all…

  16. You can’t go wrong with Chuck Norris and cake. They’re two of my favorite things.

    • Good thinking. You really don’t want to make Chuck’s Naughty list. (Thanks for stopping by!)

  17. Chuck Norris is so awsome he doesn’t have to go big game hunting. The animals just come to him and commit hari kari at his feet!

    Chuck Norris once sang a country song so sad that he got his job back, his cheatin’ wife came home and his dead dog came back to life!
