So, these were done for a special Caribbean-themed bridal shower for one of my favorite Brooklyn designers. They are made with a citrus infused sugar cookie and decorated with vanilla royal icing. They were just as delicious as they were cute!
It’s a butt. It’s a cake. It’s a cake that looks like a butt!!!! Yes, I had a lot of room to make this look more…um….realistic, but there are just certain lines that I don’t believe cake should cross….EVER! I was told by one of my co-workers that a gaudy g-string may have be in order to distinguish my butt cake from being mistaken for boobies from afar.
In any case, that’s the Irish Car Bomb flavor under all that skin- Guiness Chocolate Cake, soaked in Jameson’s and Bailey’s, with a Bailey’s buttercream frosting. The skin is peach colored fondant and the tats are nothing more than food color. The lips, are not mine, by the way. I have some very lovely stamps that I purchased in the scrapbook aisle of my local craft store. (40% off, of course!) I gave it the “lips” texture by going over it with a little more color with a paintbrush.
I know we’re all adults here, but what is it about a Butt Cake that doesn’t make us all giggle?
