Project of the Week: Will's Birthday Part 1

I may not have been blogging much lately, but it doesn't mean that I haven't been super busy doing projects! I have been working on my boyfriend Will's birthday surprise for a couple of months now. His birthday was this past weekend so I am finally able to post about them. I am going to split his birthday projects into two posts. This one will be about the biggest project, his birthday cake!

Will has been into brewing his own beer for a few months now, so I thought it would be appropriate to make him a beer stein cake!

This cake was constructed with using, 6" Funfetti cake layers, buttercream icing, marshmallow fondant and rice crisipies. Check out the slide show for pictures!

I loved using marshmallow fondant. It was a little harder to work with than the Wilton premade kind, but the taste was SO much better! Here's the link to the recipe:

Another new product I used was Duff's Cake Graffiti: A spray paint for cake! I used the silver paint for the top of the stein. It worked really well. It can be found at Michael's.,default,pd.html?cgid=products-bakeware-duffgoldman&start=54

That's it for now! Keep an eye out for my next birthday post tomorrow!

The other day I was telling my mom about your blog. I remember using the phrase "...she's basically everything I want to be." These last 2 posts pretty much confirm that. Keep it up!!


Don't know what to say! That is so sweet, Amber! We should get together soon, and talk cake! :)
