Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun on

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The cake was lemon butter cake with Swiss buttercream icing. 6" rounds iced and stacked 6" high were craved in the shape of a glass. I used a bubble tea straw over the copper pipe that inserted into the cake. The cake and pipe were covered in modelling chocolate. It was my first time making modelling chocolate. It was easy. I made sure I didn't over mix. I used a real beer can because of lack of time. I airbrushed all the colour which was the hardest part since I haven't had much experience. The handle was made out of modelling chocolate and painted with gold dust mixed with lemon extract. I put the cake in the fridge until I was ready to give it my husband. After a couple of hours in room temperature, it started to bleed. I guess the condensation dripping. Always learn something. Loved this class. So please with the project. on

Hi, I like your cake, how did you get the copper rod through the glass?

Was this your first gravity defying cake? It looks so awesome did you use an airbrush for the color of the beer on the cup?

12/31/2013 Flag

Yes it was my first gravity defying cake. I used an airbrush and then wiped off some of the colour with vodka.

Which colours you used for glass? And how did you supported the real can?

01/16/2014 Flag

I used first yellow and then brown airbrush colours. It wasn't looking the way I wanted it to look so I wiped some of the colour off. I put modelling chocolate inside the can.
