Martini Birthday Cake
So with the weather so hot lately, I guess we're all looking for a summer cocktail. This cake was inspired by a fan of the Stoli Blueberry Martini. I made a fun, girly cake by covering a red velvet cake with fondant zebra stripes and adding a blue ribbon border and bow. I topped the cake with a fondant cocktail size napkin which became the perfect coaster for the martini on top. For the drink, I again used a plastic martini glass and filled it with pineapple cake. Then I actually poured a little Malibu rum over the cake and topped with frosting (rum cake, right?) So I guess it was more like a pina colada in a blueberry colored glass. Still tasty though. For a pop of color, I added the rolled roses in hot pink and tucked in a couple of rhinestone picks for a little bling. The finishing touch was the fondant olive on a drink stirrer for the top of the cocktail.
