What was your inspiration?
This was my brother-n-laws groomsman cake that my sister-n-law requested. It was pretty tricky but I with the help of many many hours, a few images printed out and an exacto-knife I got the logo pretty close I thought. Now this was not all cake...I actually have about 1/3 of it as a foam base with two tiers stacked on top, covered in icing & fondant and then i attached the logo with painting the colors out as close to the beer can as I could. I had a lot of fun doing this and even the pull tab made it look pretty real - well if he had a beer can the size of a tiny beer keg that is!
What are you most proud of?
Well, all it is actually. It was really hard and time consuming but in the eand he was really surprised and happy so that is what I loved!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Tons and tons of pictures on line can help you get views from every angle of an object. Just keep looking for different pictures to help you cover all sides of your cake. If you have time - it's the details that stand out the most for people.
