Going through some older photos I found this cake I made 3 years ago! I’m pretty sure I have never shared it until now. The design is still in style this cake could have been made today. I love this cake style and I think it’s safe to say it’s still trending. This is a simple style but still so perfect. The cake is covered in buttercream rosettes made using either a Wilton 1M or 2D tip. I don’t remember which one I used here but I often switch off depending on my mood. The pink color gets lighter with each layer. A simple fondant topper finishes off the look.

Now this cake doesn’t actually contain any sriracha…that would be weird. This is a grooms cake I made to look just like a bottle of the popular hot sauce. The sriracha bottle was carved out of cake before I covered it in red fondant. Red is a really difficult color to achieve out of fondant so I always buy red fondant. I hand piped all the lettering onto the bottle with royal icing and the help of my pico projector (affiliate link).
This is technically a two tier cake. The bride wanted the cake to look like it was on a wood board so I made the bottom tier into a wood plank cake. I carved all the grooves and notches into some brown fondant. Then I painted on some darker brown color to create some variations in the wood. To finish it off, I airbrushed dark brown/black in some spots to really bring it to life. I’m totally impressed by how this cake came together!
I still love this cake design. I have made it in a single tier version (see it here and here) and now this is the two tier version. I made the cake topper the same way as the oter cakes. I designed an airplane cutter set (purchase here) and just customized the colors to match this color scheme. You can catch the airplane topper tutorial here. I used my standard car cutter to make the line of cars, but I also have a groovy car cutter available. To make the windows on the cars I hand cut some white fondant and glued them on with some water or tylose glue. All the tires were cut out of black fondant with a small round piping tip and attached the same way. I designed a train cutter to use for the front car. The rest of the train cars are just hand cut out of matching fondant. The clouds were cut using my fluffy cloud cutter. I cut all the pieces including the airplane topper ahead of time. When it was time to assemble the cake it all came together really quickly. Happy 3rd Birthday Shmuel!
