This is the cake that I used the Beer Buttercream Frosting on. This cake is going to be an Anniversary surprise. The four represents their 4 years together and the letters are their initials.
This cake looks very simple, but was time consuming.
After that was done, I allowed the color to dry on the cake (be VERY careful not to get drops of water on the color!...lesson learned!).
Next, I cut out a circle of white to place in the center. I cut out a template using wax paper to get the "stripes" all the same size. Then, I added the small dashes around the circle.
For the writing on the top/bottom, I was going to use my Wilton Food Writer. Problem was, it wasn't working well and it ran out of color! Ahhhh!!! So.....I opted for making them out of fondant. I really like the way they turned out, but it took me a LONG time!
