Got beer?

Project Description

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

How many servings did it yield?
ca.cakemaker@gmail.com answered:
The cake is a rich tasting cake so it can serve around 12 or more servings. (wedding cake servings) It was like two 6" cakes stacked on each other.

sha.naeem asked:
Is it empty can or is it cake & how u stack this can coz it is bit heavey . What is copper pipe thickness?
ca.cakemaker@gmail.com answered:
The can is empty. I didn't have time to make a modelling chocolate one. The copper pipe is 1/4 inch and Home Depot sells it. Do you mean 'how did I stack the glass or the beer can?'
