My friend Kelly asked me to make her husband's 35th birthday cake. Kelly is a graphic designer and this is the 2nd cake she has designed for me to make. I cannot take credit for any of the design elements, only carrying out her plan. And sweet Kelly always has way more confidence in my abilities than I do!
This is the "sketch" she gave me.
And this is what I came up with.
I had less than a week to hunt down all the materials. The beer bottles are Tabasco bottles.
The beer glass was such a challenge to find... after several trips to wal-mart, target, and several craft stores, I finally found one that was to scale and the right shape at Goodwill. I used a can covered in fondant for the barrel.
