How much fun did I have doing the “Rock Star” themed birthday party this weekend? TONS!!!
I did a big guitar cake for all the guests at G-man’s Party and this adorable smash cake for the Birthday Boy! His cake was a banana pound cake with chocolate frosting and the guitar was a choco-chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. OMG it is MY new fav! De-fricking lish!!
1 stick of butter
1 8 oz cream cheese
1 cup peanut butter
1 t vanilla extract
1 32 oz bag powdered sugar
Cream all ingredients, but sugar. Slowly add powdered sugar in 1/2 cup increments. Sometimes you will use the whole bag, sometimes more, sometimes less. I think it has to do with the humidity. Which here in NC we already have had 90 degree sticky days and I am finding I am using more sugar in all my frosting recipes. Who knows?
For G’s cake I used red fondant stars and threaded craft wire between 2 stars and sealed with a little vodka! I know you must have just gasped! It was literally less than a drop! I read somewhere that we working with fondant using alcohol opposed to water would seal quicker as the alcohol evaporates and the water just makes a sticky mess. It worked! I made them around midnight last night and the were perfect this morning!! And didn’t they turn out cute! I am posting another pic cause I just love it!!
