Calvin Klein Birthday Cake


It was recently my brothers birthday as you know from the previous post, so I obviously had to make a cake. As it was his 18th I wanted to do something a little bit different and like most teenage boys he's really into designers and especially Calvin Klein underwear so I made him underwear cake.

I made a three layer vanilla sponge filled with buttercream and strawberry jam and then carved it into the shape I wanted.  I used bright pink royal icing that I bought and white royal icing for the top and then piped round the seaming and the "Calvin Klein" waistband.

It's quite a simple shape with block colours but I was really pleased with how it came out.  My brother really liked it too so that was the main thing! I've made the vanilla sponge before and blogged about it and it turned out just as nice, it's really classic and simple but tastes really good and everyone likes it which is always a bonus. 

Thanks for reading
