Diet Coke Cake & Giveaway




Once again I have made a cake and did not take pictures like I should have. I get going and I am so into making the cake that I forget to take pictures.

Click HERE for the link to the recipe I used

  I used a 4 in round pan. I used four and a half 4 in cakes for this cake and stacked them with frosting between each one. The cake was approx nine inches tall. I used three cake boards between layers with thick straw supports. I then crumb coated the whole think with buttercream frosting.

I made my own fondant. Recipe and tutorial HERE

I colored the fondant grey. After I applied the fondant I sprayed it with shiny silver edible paint. 


I cut the letters out with my silhouette. You can use sugar sheets for this. If you don't have a cutter you can use stencils and cut with an exacto knife. Then apply with a little water.
