Drunken 50th Birthday Cake (1 Viewer)

This was a drunken-themed birthday cake that I made for my husband's 50th birthday.

The cake is a 6-inch Madeira which is one of his favourite cakes. When baked I added extra moisture by adding a stock syrup to the cake when it came out of the oven. Once levelled, I then filled it with jam and covered it in golden marzipan. I used white icing fondant, autumn gold, and jet black Renshaw icing for the top layer.

The cake was then topped with a sleepy replica of my husband holding an empty champagne bottle. I made his hands and face using white Saracino modelling paste mixed with Paprika Sugarflair food dye to make his skin tone. For the champagne drip, I mixed piping gel with gold lustre dust. The dots, Confetti and streamers were made using the Renshaw icing and cutters.

To make the streamers I wrapped slim pieces of icing fondant around a skewer and left them to dry. For the base of the cake, I used a rounded border cutter.

The additional topper decorations that I used to decorate the cake were a Confetti filled balloon, a Happy 50th Birthday sign, and some dotty and spiral themed toppers.

The colour of the bought toppers matched perfectly with the edible ones.

And there you have it a fun filled Happy 50th Birthday Cake.

I love it, it looks perfect and I bet he enjoyed it. Did he eat it with a glass or two of his favourite tipple?
Thank you, I had fun making him.

More than one or two, the topper was an actual representation of him at the end of the evening. 😂
