I've blogged about bottlecap cakes on several different occasions. They are a great option for clients that enjoy their brewskies (or any drink for that matter!) The great part is that they're relatively easy to make and they're budget friendly.
The funny thing about these bottle cap cakes is that once the groom hears that I offer a chocolate cake with Guinness stout beer they are sold. There's just something about a cake with beer in it that reaches out and grabs men by their tastebuds! If you haven't tried the chocolate stout cake yet, you can get the recipe at King Arthur Flour's website.
This cake offered us a mildly different challenge. Normally we just cut out the pieces we need. This logo was more of a negative image; it took up all the space and the pieces we cut out were the pieces that got thrown away. And the graphic is based on a 16-inch round, and our cutter will only cut a 12 x 24 inch graphic. So we had to make a common cut and cut the logo in two separate pieces. It really helped to have the graphic printed out full size when pulling out the "unwanted" pieces.
Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome week!
