Whiskey Barrel Cake

You have a favorite whiskey….and you’re turning the big 4-0…so naturally, you need a whiskey barrel cake!

For Jason’s cake, we layered cakes and carved them into the barrel shape.  We then iced the cake in buttercream and added a woodgrain texture to it.  We let this set until firm and then painted it with food color, so that the color would seep into the grooves and give the wood a dimensional look.  We then added the fondant bands, whiskey label and sentiment on the board.  Happy 40th Birthday, Jason!!
