Microphone Cake for Suprise 25th Birthday Party
One of my regular customers was planning a surprise party at Dave & Busters for her boyfriend's 25th birthday and she wanted a special cake for her musician man.
She sent me this picture and asked me to recreate with cake:
The cake is chocolate...
filled with vanilla buttercream...
carved and shaped...
then covered in more vanilla buttercream.
I colored two batches of vanilla fondant, a light gray and a dark gray and covered the entire cake. I used royal icing to add the lines on the microphone top, which is probably the only part of this cake I am not crazy about...just because it didn't come out as clean as I wanted.
I painted almost the entire cake in silver using silver pearl dust and vodka.
GS1986 is the birthday boy's initials and birth year.
I added Happy 25th to the cake board using black vanilla fondant and brushed them with a diluted mixture of the silver pearl dust and paint, just because.
Happy 25th Birthday!
