This was a really fun cake to make. It was made to celebrate a 30th birthday. Dean loves his steak and Grey Goose vodka so I made them for him, but all out of cake!
The vodka bottle was a challenge, but I’m not one to turn down a challenge! It was really tall so I applied the fondant in two pieces. I wrapped one piece around the entire bottle. Then I used a second piece to cover the cap of the bottle. Once the cake was covered in fondant, I hand pained all the details onto the bottle. I personalized the label to say “distilled and bottled for Dean”. I thought it was a cute touch!
The steak was another fun challenge. The inside of the cake is red velvet, so I’m sure it looked really cool when it was cut open! I wanted it to be able to feed the whole party so I made it look like a really thick cut steak. I wrapped a marbleized piece of fondant all the way around the steak and added extra pieces of white fondant to give the cake an even more realistic look. It’s hard to tell, but I brushed the whole steak with a corn syrup and water mixture to give the steak some extra shine. The steak was completed with a little tag to celebrate Deans 30th Birthday.
