This cake was for Jess’s 18th Birthday!
It is obviously a Smirnoff bottle cake, (a HUGE Smirnoff bottle, the actual bottle was 42cm long!!)
The cake Inside is Red velvet (chocolate with beetroot juice added to make it look really red)
Everything you see you can eat although I don’t recommend eating the actual cake board.
I hand made the ‘ice cubes’ then tinted them slightly with edible blue lustre dust so they looked ‘Icy’ and drizzled them with pale blue royal icing so they looked like they were melting from the red lettering on top, the Bottle cap was all hand sculpted fondant which was then painted with confectioners glaze to look like red metal.
The ‘fabric’ was fondant mixed with a gum to make it elastic and rolled very very thin which was then draped on the board which was finished along the edges with a thin white ribbon.
The images are printed on edible paper with edible ink then carefully cut out and placed on the cake.
Everyone seemed delighted with the outcome!
