Fabio Trump

For a Romantic Evening

This cake was made for a friend’s “Trashy Romance Novel” themed birthday party. A month before hand she jokingly asked that I put Trump’s face on her cake. And so I had to deliver. To make it a little more thematically appropriate, I also decided to give him fabulous Fabio hair. My only complaint was that I didn’t get him orange enough.IMG_0219

This is a chocolate wine cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and raspberry jam between the layers. The cake is rich and fudgy while the frosting is light. The wine I used had a slightly spicy undertone, making the cake similar to a Mexican Hot Chocolate.

To get Trump’s face, I traced a photo using buttercream, froze it for a few hours, then transferred it onto the cake. A tutorial for this can be found here.
