I made this coffee and donut cake for my best friend when she was hired by the police service in our city. I thought that it would be fun to make a Tim Horton's to go coffee and a Donut as a joke, considering the stereotype of police and their coffee breaks!
For the donut I bought a Wilton ring pan which was the perfect shape to form the donut. I then iced it using butter cream icing and topped it with sprinkles. Simple!
For the coffee mug I baked another cake in a loaf pan and shaved off the sharp edges of it so it looked more round. I then iced it with butter cream icing as well. The cup is make from fondant which I tinted and then cut to fit my cup. The Tim Horton's Logo I drew on free hand with a red Wilton edible food writer.
I think this one turned out really well and was pretty simple to put together! Everyone loved it especially the guest of honor!
My daughter attends a daycare center with the most wonderful teachers! The daycare director, Melanie, is a great person and she and I share a love of coffee and mochas. For her birthday, I surprised her with this Cup of Coffee cake at the daycare.
The basic shape of the cake was achieved using the Wilton Wonder Mold, the one used to make doll cakes. I just flipped it upside down and trimmed a little off the top. The cake was frosted with buttercream in white, blue, and green, using a star tip. The handle of the coffee cup is actually a strip cut out from a milk jug and poked into the cake to create a loop. It was then frosted with buttercream to match the cake.
The "coffee" is just brown buttercream, and the "whipped topping" is white buttercream. The chocolate drizzle is regular old Hershey's chocolate sauce.
It was quite a hit at daycare, and she appreciated her cake being themed to match something she loves.
I baked a cake in a glass bowl, then baked a round one that would fit on top to give the cup more height. Iced them together and then iced the whole thing. For the handles, I melted white melting chocolate and formed to 'c's' on wax paper and glued them together with icing, then stuck it in the side of the cup.
For the coffee, I put wax paper in the cake pan I baked the round cake in, and put a layer of melted chocolate in. When it had hardened took it out, and placed it on the cake.
Added some cupcakes around and there you have it, a Coffee Cup Birthday Cake!
I made this coffee cup cake for my Grandmother's 66th Birthday. (hence the 66 oz. ;)) It originally was suppose to be a standing cake but fell over giving me this pretty neat idea.
I started with two 13x9 cakes and used a simple circle object from my house imprinting them on the cakes and then cutting out the circles. I think I used 8.
I bought pre-made fondant from a specialty cake store rolled it out and covered with my hands. I then dyed the remaining fondant, the signature pink & orange of Dunkin Donuts and used the Wilton cut outs.
My friend and I made this Coffee Cup Cake for another friend's birthday. We had a hard time choosing what to make in cake form and we finally decided on a coffee cup. Our friend loves coffee and cake, so we thought it would be a great gift.
We simply stacked about four cakes on top of each other with icing in between. Then we carved the cakes to the shape of a coffee cup. We covered the whole thing with icing, put it in the freezer for about an hour, then re-iced it. The handle was made out of Styrofoam covered in icing.
