Bud Light Lime Anyone?
First off I would like to explain that I was given a two day notice to make this Beer Cake.
The only requirement given was that they wanted the Bud Light Lime logo. I looked on the internet and saw different types of beer cakes and almost decided on doing a 3D beer bottle but then came across different cooler cakes, so I used those as well as a cooler that my neighbor had as my inspiration and then made it my own.
For this cake I used two ten inch cake pans and four boxes of cake mix. I used two Devils Food and Two Yellow cake mixes. I stacked all of the cakes on top of each other using chocolate frosting in between the layers. I then cut off the back couple of inches to make the cake more rectangular.
I made some of the awesome marshmallow fondant from this site, my first time making and using, and covered the cake.
I then took some gel coloring mixed it with water on a plate, (I know alcohol is better, but didn't have any). I used a craft paint roller I had found and painted first a yellow then a bright green around the cake and on top. I then made up some buttercream icing and used that for the borders and the logo. I also rolled out some more fondant and cut a strip to use as the handle of the cooler, and made a fondant bottle opener. The last thing I did was to cut out two holes in the top of the cake. I cut these holes at angles so that the bottles would sit at angles. Considering my time frame I was very happy with the end result.
