TWiB – Birthday edition

Over the past month or so, a couple of my friends have celebrated their birthdays. Each of them requested a special cake, both of which turned out fantastically.

First, I made an ice cream cake shaped like the character Boo.

I used this picture as a guide, so I think it’s pretty accurate. The only thing I changed was the throat for simplicity’s sake. The cake itself was devils food with a cookies and cream ice cream layer in between.

The other birthday person was KC, whom you might know from this post. As such, she requested a cake shaped like a giant Hostess cupcake.

I used this post as inspiration. The only suggestions I have are to definitely use shortening for the white frosting otherwise it won’t be as white, and to add a little more powdered sugar to the chocolate frosting to make it easier to spread.

It tasted just like a real Hostess cupcake, except much less artificial. And of course, the birthday girl loved it.
