Birthdays at the bakery are truly a fun time. If you happen to be close to the staff, you can expect a pretty special birthday cake. Check out this amazing drum set cake for our pastry chef’s (Lindsay) boyfriend:
If you picture engineers as pocket protector wearing calculator pushing nerds, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Here in Gainesville, Florida we literally have some engineers that rock.
Ruben is the perfect example.
When he’s not getting his engineering on, Ruben loves hitting the skins. We’re even lucky enough to have his drum set here at the bakery… which made the perfect inspiration for his drum set cake.
When we say his drum set cake we mean it — that’s a perfect model of his drums. Only this version tastes much better.
The concept for this cake was to recreate Ruben’s drum set. To do so, there were four drum cakes, 2 fondant symbols, and edible gear.
The drum cakes were elevated to resemble the drum set, and the airbrush went into overtime to recreate the look and feel of Ruben’s kit.
Birthday cakes should never be frozen. The best cakes are the ones that put a HUGE smile direct center on the birthday boy’s face. Ruben’s smile? Stayed there for days. =)
