Last week my alma mater played in the Fiesta Bowl. Although the game turned out better for fellow photoblogger Tux over at Through My Lens 365 — since she lives in Oregon and all — I do have some fun pictures to share. And they really don’t have anything to do with the Fiesta Bowl.
My college roommate rented out a room at a local bar where more than 50 K-State fans gathered to watch the game. She did a phenomenal job of decorating the space with white twinkle lights, white paper lanterns, and plenty of Royal purple. We’d already had dinner and I am not a beer drinker, so I only gave a passing glance to the white cooler with fresh ice and several bottles of Boulevard beer sitting on the food table. At halftime there was a lot of commotion around the cooler, and it was only then that I realized the white “Styrofoam” cooler was a cake being cut to share!
Every single aspect of the cake — from the white “Styrofoam” cooler to the ice cubes to the beer bottles — was edible. Both the Red Velvet and the Champagne cake were divine. (I decided to start my 2013 diet after the Fiesta Bowl so I could try a piece of each.) The beer bottles looked so real that people took bites of the “glass” and “labels” to prove it was made out of sugar. It was a bit like being in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, minus the Oompa Loompas.
One of my daughters sized the cake up best by saying, “Man, I don’t think Cake Boss could even do something this cool!” If you are in Kansas City and need a special occasion cake, be sure to check out The Bridal Kitchen.
And so here are three photos of the beer bottle. What do you think? Do you have a favorite below? Have you ever seen such a realistic, edible beer bottle before?
Beer Bottle Photo #1. With remnants of frosting around the base, the sugar beer bottle sits on the right next to a real beer bottle on the left.
Beer Bottle Photo #2. A close-up of the beer bottle label. This, too, was completely edible.
Beer Bottle Photo #3. Another side-by-side shot of the bottles with the real one on the left and the sugar one on the right.
