I'm having a birthday party for my mom this weekend and I don't want the cake to say "Happy Birthday, Mom". What should it say instead? [more inside]

In a fit of limerance I told my new dating partner that I would make them a birthday cake of their choice since their birthday falls on Christmas Eve and they never get one. They want something chocolate and decadent. I used to bake all the time so I have the skills but life stress has zapped my energy. What are your easiest and most decadent chocolate cake recipes so I can please her in the spirit that I intended?

Cake dilemma: I want to surprise my friend with homemade birthday cake, but I don't know what kind of sweets he doesn't like. I have my own tentative solution (two or three small cakes) for which I need guidance and recipes, but I'm also open to other solutions. [more inside]

I would like to make some Halo (the video game) things for my husband's birthday (next week). I am thinking about a Halo-cake (any good ideas? I don't want to make a photo cake) but don't have any other ideas. I don't live in the US and cannot buy many special products here. I also don't want to spend a lot of money. It's the idea that counts. Any ideas?

I need a birthday cake for Friday (Sat morning at the latest). Doesn't have to be anything exciting, just something that can feed about 20 people, and says 'Happy Birthday' on it.
I live in London - where on earth would I go to get such a thing? I guess I could try large supermarkets, but there aren't many in central London, and it would be nice to get something 'handmade', by a decent bakery. All suggestions gratefully recieved!
