21st Birthday Cake

14 Apr

My best friend Sara’s little brother Brett turned 21 this past weekend.  Dan and I went down to State College, PA to celebrate with them.  Of course I made a cake.  It is a two tier topsy-turvy cake.  The flavor is chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling.

I had some frustration with this cake.  First, covering this shape cake in fondant is not easy and there were some low moments where I just wanted to cry and throw the whole thing in the trash.  But it did go on better than the last topsy-turvy I made, so there has been some improvement. Secondly, I wanted to have a beer bottle coming out of the top.  I tried to make it out of rice crispy treats and it just didn’t look right.  Dan and I both worked on a version and neither of them look good enough to put on a cake.  Overall I think the cake looked good, it just wasn’t the master piece I was going for.  The birthday boy loved it, so I guess that’s all that really matters.
