Father's Day Beer Stein

This cake was a red velvet cake using the smallest spring form pans by Wilton, and then carved some to form it’s shape. Every two layers I placed a divider so that I could place cut skewers in between as supports, then ran a full skewer all the way through all layers and cardboard circles to keep it stable. I made the lid and handle out of gum paste and then painted it with silver sheen food coloring. The plate, pickle, pretzels, brat, and German bread were all made from gum paste and then chalked with petal dust the colors. The mustard was royal icing, along with the tree and trunk on the stein. The bottom cake was covered in fondant to look like a checkered table cloth. The foam on the cake was quite by accident. I had used a cooked flour icing and it kept sliding down the sides. Everyone thought I had done it on purpose. It ended up just adding to the whole composition!

Oh my goodness Linda! How realistic looking this cake is! I absolutely love all the details. It must have taken you such a long time to make!

Thank you Toni. I really had fun making this cake since my husband was born in Germany and is very proud of his heritage. The day I made this cake, my grandson and I also made a R2D2 cake for his birthday. It was one very busy week-end during that time.
