Whisky Barrel Cake

Whisky Barrel Cake

Last weekend’s order meant taking leave from the part of my brain that is happy thinking about pretty colours, fairy figurines and girly goodies and entering the realm of creating a birthday celebration cake for a guy! Amy asked me to make a whisky barrel for her husband, Rick, who was celebrating his 30th birthday.  The cake was a 2 layered vanilla and chocolate cake, carved into the shape of a barrel. I then covered the cake in strips of wood embossed sugar paste, painted the strips to resemble aged wood and added the black metal strips and wording to the barrel.

The plaque was designed by Rick’s brother in law, also Rick, and it was the perfect addition to create an elegant and realistic look to this cake. As always I love my cakes to be placed on a board that suits the theme and the grey embossed board here was perfect for the cake and the addition of the birthday message. Wishing you a brilliant 30th Birthday Rick and may there be many an occasion to charge your whisky glass!

Rick…. ” Thank you Lisa, such a sensational creation “

Amy….” Lisa, thank you so much!  The cake was an absolute hit and it was so beautiful that we almost didn’t want to cut it up!  You are so talented.”

Tracy…. “Once again, you outdid yourself Lisa!  Thank you for the fabulous cake – it was much admired “
