A 1st birthday should always be both memorable and fun, just like this cake.I’ve made quite a few shaped and sculpted cakes in my day, and I’m always sad to see cake scraps removed and discarded in the trash in the construction process. A drum is a perfect shape for a sculpted cake. Nothing gets lost and it’s still more than just a normal birthday cake.
The smallest one is Chocolate Lovers cake, perfect for those messy baby photos. I was inspired by the Premier drum logo for the name. The drum sticks are fondant wrapped around Pepperidge Farm Pirouettes. I also added a touch of shimmer spray around the outside to give the gray a metallic shine and the orange a more rock and roll look. This was such a fantastic idea for a cake, I hope more customers ask for them because they’re easily customizable, and it takes very little extra time to turn a cake into a drum.
