A New Spin on Aging Cake is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
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 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!!
