For you guys looking to do cakes professionally, please know now that this is a very hard thing to balance. You can't make a 3-D carved helmet cake to feed 10 people and you have to learn to tell people the facts. We don't have a shrink ray (maybe next Christmas)! I used 5 8" round cake layers for this cake. The blue is all buttercream as are the bubbles. The spilled beer is piping gel with a little copper color.
The logo was an edible image that I found, transferred into PowerPoint and enlarged it to the size I needed. The birthday letters, plaque the image is mounted on and lid are all Fondarific. Honestly, this was a pretty easy cake and I don't say that much, so go get to making one!
Have a great weekend!
