CAKE FLAVOR: Red Velvet and Cheesecake
FILLING(S): White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
OUTER FROSTING: White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
DECOR: Fondant, Whipped Cream, and Pulled Sugar
One of my good friends from college, Joey, was turning the big 3-0 and decided to celebrate it at a bar in Long Beach. Joey is one of my closest friends so I needed to do something special. I knew exactly what type of cake I wanted to make. His girlfriend said he loves red velvet so that's how I came up with the flavor.
I had made a anti-gravity beer cake in the past but I used fondant for the beer coming out of the can. This time around I wanted to do something a little different. I wanted to make it actually look like beer, so I used pulled sugar instead. To my surprise, it wasn't too difficult to melt and mold the sugar and I think the color came out perfect! Despite burning myself with the hot sugar, I think it turned out great.
Oh, I should mention the slight headache I experienced when I tried to take a picture of this cake. I took it out to the pool area because it had the most light. I was adjusting it slightly when suddenly something slipped and my fingers went right through the whipped cream foam. Luckily, the foam was an easy fix and the cake got to the bar in one piece.
