A New Spin on Aging Cake is rated 4.666666666666667 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a BLAST making this cake, just anticipating the recipient's reaction! The most difficult thing about this cake was the spinner, and it really wasn't that difficult. I just placed the spinner between two small nylon 'washers' and attached it with a small pin to the dowel stuck down the middle of the cake, then put a small drop of mineral oil between the washers and the arrow so it would spin freely. What a great way to get adults to laugh hard at themselves - they all had to try flicking the arrow to see what they would come up with! That is the mark of a truly great birthday cake - how memorable it makes the occasion for fun. Definately would do it again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had so much fun with the "A New Spin on Aging Cake". I know my friend only turned 40 but it was a big hit. We threw her a party in her favorite place to eat and people were coming over to look at my cake. Everyone loved it and was amazed when I told them I made it. I changed up the wording a little since Jennifer was actually the youngest of all of us I had to put our names along with dirt and king tut on the cake.. The one thing I did different was instead of fondant I used icing and found that so much easier. I used a piece of art foam like you use for kids crafts and cut it out in the shape of a spinner then wrote on it with a marker placed it on a cake spacer and it would actually spin in the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake with the 8 ball in mind, but added a few more adult, not dirty, choices to yes no and maybe. It was great fun. I also modified the spinner as per a few of Wilton fan suggestions, your suggestions boards are very helpful. I always try to modify the item that are not edible so they can be eaten and not just thrown away. I made the spinner out of sugar cookie with the unedable parts not seen. Love these ideas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was fun and easy to make. Used edible markers for the words. Used a straw in the middle of the cake and a cocktail straw in the ball on the top of the spinner and put the cocktail straw in the straw in the cake and filled with royal icing. ( Can use melted chocolate or fondant). This allowed the spinner to actually work! It was a big hit at the party!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cake was made for a 50th birthday party for my brother inlaw .the cake was a great hit with every one . Most of them had not had fondant be for so was quite novel . I had not used the fondant to completely cover a cake before but that did not stop me from giving it a try! The instructions provided were great ,easy to follow .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake wasn't too difficult to make but definitely takes some time. You must ice the cake under the fondant very smooth since fondant shows all the imperfections. But the end result is worth the effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one took a little time but it was really fun to do and play with after it was made! A tip for the spinner, you can use a flower spike and a long lollipop stick for the bottom of the spinner parts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this design, but used buttercream instead. I used a tip 10 to fill in each triangle. Let dry slightly and use a paper towel to smooth. Make sure the paper towel does not have a pattern!
