Coolest Rock & Roll Birthday Cake

I made this Rock and Roll cake for my sister’s 50th birthday where the theme of the party was the 1950’s. This was my first attempt at playing with fondant and cake paint.

The edible parts of the cake were:

– the cake base, which was a simple rectangular butter cake, iced with butter icing,

– the milkshape, which was all tinted fondant including the foam balls, and

– the words and pink star, which were all premade icing letters from the supermarket.

The non-edible parts were:

– the old 45RPM record,

– the straws in the milkshake,

– the glow sticks around the base of the cake, which I activated just prior to my sister blowing out the candles, and

– the candles.

This cake was very easy and was a lot of fun to make.
