Ashtray Birthday Cake
Happy Birthday Marios!!!
A chocolate fudge cake with a rich chocolate filling and orange buttercream on top, covered with homemade fondant.
I tried to create the marble effect on the ashtray. I used a different recipe for the buttercream this time. Instead of using icing sugar I used sugar syrup and this time I used egg-yolks as well. The buttercream texture and the taste were perfect, but it was difficult for me to apply it on the cake, since it was too soft.
Yes! The cigar was made of fondant, and the ash was edible silver and pearl dust. It looks real, doesn't it?
