This Beer Bucket Cake is a 5 layer yellow cake with chocolate filling. I used 2- 8 inch rounds for the bottom and 3- 10 inch rounds for the upper layers. I froze the cakes overnight then shaved to create the bucket look. I covered the whole cake with fondant.
I used crushed graham crackers for the sand and candy for the beer bottles, and spilling beer. I also used the same candy mixture for the ice and the seashells. I made the bottle mold with a liquid silicone that I purchased at Michael’s for about 9 dollars. It was one of my first times using the candy mixture, but I think it turned out pretty good.
I printed the beer labels from a picture that I found on-line on photo paper then used buttercream frosting to “glue it to the bottles”. I painted the bottle caps with Silver luster and vodka mix as the vodka dries faster than water with the luster and does not leave the candy sticky. The birthday boy loved it!
