Cocktail Cakes in the Sunshine

This sunny weather makes me feel like sitting on a beach sipping cocktails. So if you have a summer celebration coming up then why not combine food and drink favourites to make a cocktail themed cake? We recently had a request to make a Porn Star Martini themed cake for an 18th birthday which got me thinking to what other drinks we could re-create in cake form…Kia Royal anyone? Pina Colada perhaps?

It takes a bit of trial and error to get the combination of flavours coming through together, but for the Porn Star Martini cake we opted for our trusty vanilla cake, and replaced the vanilla drizzle with a Prosecco syrup (boiled Prosecco and sugar). Then we filled and coated it with a passion fruit buttercream – the juice of several passion fruits is needed to get the strength of flavour needed but it’s well worth it! 

This is the final cake…

…the pink drip is white chocolate ganache and it’s all topped with fluffy meringues. 

We always love to experiment with new cakes and flavours so let us know if there is a cocktail cake you would like us to recreate!
