Just For Gag Cakes
If the friend has a good sense of humour, you could casually mock his or her age by baking a frosty white cake that represents ageing hair or it could the shape of a round bald scalp with a few greying hairs. This might look ugly on the outside but you could make it heavenly delicious inside. It could be the shape of a fancy walking stick or even dentures. Be creative! Another popular concept is the “over the hill” idea! Bake a cake that looks like a hill and you could drop tiny toy tombstones and the morbid things that subtly imply – “Hey, you’re not too far from tripping into your grave”. All in good spirit of course, you do not want to turn the party into a sob fest. So be careful with what you pick for gags.
As clichéd as it may be, some people love to stick to the conventionalities! Go online or check the birthday recipe books and you will come across multiple ways of signifying 60 years on a birthday cake.

A large cake with frosting in shape of 60 would do too.
Three In OneYou could bake three separate cakes in three different sizes and stack them over the other. Dedicate each cake to twenty years of his or her life. Each could symbolize a special phase in their lives. One could denote youth, the other parenthood or work and so on. Add a tinge of the birthday boy or girl’s favourite hobby.
