Dad's Birthday

My dad is ever the partier, so I decided to attempt a glass of beer for his birthday cake! I made 4, 6 inch hexagon shaped vanilla cakes, stacked them with a layer of OREO cream filling and frosted with vanilla buttercream. it turned out pretty good, but the handle I made out of fondant was a little heavy so I had to make a support to help it stay in the cake...next time I will use a better strategy for that! :)

After the cakes were done, I made some cupcakes with the leftover batter and made some fondant pretzels to go on top of them, as well as made the fondant pretzels to spell "dad".

I like how it turned out - and my dad inhaled his piece of cake in about a minute, so it must have been really good! :) After my brothers seen how much my dad loved the cake, they decided to help feed him a little more! :)

With the left over cake tops and OREO filling, I made a trifle. It had more of a whipped cream base so it was nice and light! Yummy!
