Gabe's 30th Birthday

This past week was a busy one for us. Me working 5 days a week and coming home to bake & decorate and Mel with the little guy, soon to be 1, well he keeps her jumping. So 2 cakes required back to back is considered a busy week for us.  This 1st cake we did was required for a friend's son Gabriele who is turning 30.  Gabe's mom Lina offered to look after getting the cake for the party and wonderfully enough she asked us to make it for Gabe.  She had decided to go with a beer theme. She wanted to mugs clinking together for cheers which had to serve 30-40 people.  Here's what we came up with;


The base cake is one choc and one vanilla filled with choc mousse, yum!!!  Covered in fondant and the 2 beer mugs are cake as well, one choc and one vanilla.  The beer is melted carmel added to piping gel with a little brown food colouring.  The pretzels and peanuts are made from fondant. I place the edible Heineken and Moosehead labels around the base of the cake and I must have been leaning to the left cause if look at them they are all off and more to the left.  Should have measured!!!!  Oh well, ya think anybody noticed, LOL.  Happy 30th Gabe.......hope you enjoyed your cake!
