Birthday Cake 2: Taste the Rainbow

Michael\'s 21st Birthday CakeFriday was Michael’s 21st birthday and naturally I decided to make him a cake to celebrate. Woo! AS you can see from the photo I iced it in grey buttercream (oh, and that thing is meant to be a heart although it turned out a bit blobby). I know what you’re thinking, a grey cake? Who would want that? But wait! There’s more to this cake than meets the eye. You may think it’s just a boring, drab, grey cake but really, it’s not.

Behold! The colouful psychedelic inside of the cake! Marvel at the bright colours and how awesome it looks!

Isn’t it great? You know you want one. Anyway, this was actually super easy to do although it was a bit time consuming having to split the batter into seven separate bowls and colouring each lot individually, then spreading them one of top of the other in the cake tins. It was well worth it though. 🙂

Birthday Cake

Aw yeah!Do you know what time it is? It’s time to ROCK OUT! With this cake that I made for my brother’s 13th birthday on Saturday. It took me six hours and I am so proud of it although I was sick of looking at it by the time it was finished.

It’s made up of three cakes (two rectangle ones and a round one which was cut to be the neck of the guitar) and I made the marshmallow fondant myself. I know that the red isn’t as red as it should be and the black isn’t quite as black but I’m not that fussed because it was my first time messing around with fondant and I’d already used half a bottle of red food colouring. And my wrists and arms were killing me from all the kneading that was involved. In fact, I think making the fondant was the most time consuming part of the process. Anyway, it even has a whammy bar (Is that what it’s called?) which Dad made out of a metal chopstick (he bent it and cut it down to size) and then I stuck a lump of icing on the end of it. Yay!

What an awesome cake. It even got some comments from the other thirteen year old boys that were in the house such as: ‘WOW!’ and ‘That’s the best cake I’ve ever seen!’. Which was nice but, you know, he was thirteen so how many cakes can he have seen in his short life? Anyway, I like the cake so much and I am so proud of it that you’re going to be subjected to several more pictures of it. 🙂

Ok. I’ll stop now. 🙂
