I made this cake for a family friend and they were very happy with it. I baked the cake in a roasting tin putting some grease proof paper in the bottom to line the tin before putting the cake mixture in. it also make it easier to get the cake out after baking. As it was such a large cake it too about 1 hour 45 mins to cook i put some paper over the top of the cake too after about half an hour of it cooking so the top didnt burn. The cake its self was a normal sponge with jam and butter cream in the middle. When the cake had cooled i carved it into the same of a pint glass then cut it in half so i could put the jam and cream inside after i covered with black and white fondant icing and piped the picture and lines and used white fondant for the letters. If i did this cake again i would buy some cutters for the letters as they took a while to cut out.

Coolest Budweiser Birthday Cake 78

Homemade Budweiser Birthday Cake

Homemade Budweiser Birthday Cake

My grandpa turned 80 years old, and I was asked to do his cake. I knew he loves Budweiser, he has for my entire life, so this Budweiser Birthday Cake is what I chose to make his cake look like.

I baked a sheet cake, and iced it with red butter cream frosting. I got waxed paper and placed it over a box of Budweiser that my grandpa had in his house and traced all of the writing using a black sharpie marker. Once that was done I flipped the waxed paper over (so the images were backwards), and I began tracing over them with frosting and the finest tip I could find. Once that was done, I flipped the images over onto the cake and slightly pressed down, then slowly lifted the waxed paper off the cake. The images transferred enough for me to be able to re pipe on the cake.

It was VERY time consuming, but the cake was a big hit! Everyone loved it, especially my grandpa!

Coolest Bud Light Cake 32

Homemade Bud Light Cake

I made this Bud Light cake for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and since it's his favorite beer, I figured he would appreciate it much more than a card.

I baked two 9x13 cakes using red velvet cake mix. I traced the bottle shape onto the cake and cut off the excess (this is much easier on frozen cakes). I applied a thin layer of vanilla frosting and covered the cake in marshmallow fondant tinted brown. It took a long time to achieve the color I was looking for. I also used fondant for the bottle cap and the labels on the bottle.

I piped vanilla frosting for the letters and I decided to add a few hearts in honor of Valentine's day. I'm really proud of the way it turned out.

Coolest Corona Bottle Cake 37

Homemade Corona Bottle Cake

Homemade Corona Bottle Cake

This Corona bottle cake was made to look like a Corona beer bottle. I used four layers of 6 inch round cakes, then added five cupcakes to create the neck of the bottle. The hardest part was making sure that I had the cake secure so that it would not topple over.

I used skewers for this. The bottle was frosted and then the "label" added with a writing tip. I drizzled clear syrup to look like condensation on the bottle and added some "lime" slices.

Homemade Foot Tall Beer Mug Cake

This Foot Tall Beer Mug Cake was a hit! It was built out of 12..yes 12 8in round cakes. I covered it in fondant and hand painted the "mug" with a combination of brown's yellow's and orange food coloring to get the beer effect. The handle is made of rice krispy treats and covered in fondant. To get the foam on top of the mug, I shredded small and large marshmallows and placed them randomly.
