New Year’s Eve is always an extra special celebration in our house, since it’s also my husband Jay’s birthday. This year he requested a chocolate “coffee” cake. So without further adieu, here is Jay’s birthday cake, which also happened to be the last Sweet Element cake of 2009!
The coffee cup cake was a chocolate devil’s food cake, filled and frosted with an espresso italian meringue buttercream and decorated in fondant. The doughnut & napkin were sculpted out of fondant. The cake “board” was a piece of counter top to go with the whole coffee/diner theme!
For those of you wondering, the chocolate lil’ devil creature was a last minute surprise. He’s the FreeBSD mascot, and a favorite of Jay’s, always a tech guy at heart & a FreeBSD fan.
