I made this Pizza Birthday Cake Design for my stepson’s 15th birthday. I made two 9 inch round cakes. I frosted the first cake then stacked the second one on top. I made the crust look like it was a deep dish pizza. Next, I made the pizza sauce layer on the very top. I then mistakenly used more of a cheddar for the cheese & was corrected by my husband that pizza cheese should be white.

Now for the toppings. Everything is made out of buttercream frosting. I used different tips to create the toppings: sausage, green pepper, black olive & pepperoni. To make the pepperoni look so realistic, I flattened them down by covering my finger with powdered sugar and then patting down the frosting. I added the peppers & olives at the last minute to brighten it up.

It was a huge hit with my family. They said they knew it was cake but kept expecting to taste pizza flavor as they ate it.
