Here's a 21st Birthday Cake that doesn't take itself too seriously! It’s a novelty Beer Mug Cake with a sense of humor that your guests will remember.

Sure, turning 21 is a big deal but you don’t want to get too serious about it.

The most surprising thing about this super fun cake is the very realistic meringue beer foam. It's an easy technique that opens up tons of great decorating possibilities. check out the ice-cream cone cupcakes or the donut cake for more inventive uses of meringue.

Decorator’s Note: I’m listing exactly the colors and techniques I used for the 21st Birthday Cake as pictured, to demonstrate a technique rather than an exact blueprint. You can adapt this design to suit any occasion so adjust the colors accordingly.
Decorator’s Note: Try to color match your buttercream and candy melts. If you use candy colors for both jobs, this is much easier.

Decorator’s Note: This is a great technique that has endless possibilities. It’s perfect for sporting team logos, corporate logos or family crests as well as intricate patterns. It’s a much easier way to add detail that trying to pipe directly on to the cake and it adds more dimension that traditional piping techniques! Please don’t feel intimidated – if you want to keep this design super easy just pipe some free form swirls on the side of your cup with your frosting and skip the chocolate background. You’ll still have a fantastic finished cake.
