Oh, Captain, My Captain!
This is my first sculpted cake, which I made for my nephew's twenty-first birthday. I had to replicate the shape of a Captain Morgan Private Stock rum bottle. The cylinder in front of the cake represents a Captain and Coke, a favorite drink amongst the younger crowd. It is a cylinder of cake, filled with icing, and wrapped in parchment paper. I had some trouble with the icing getting soft around the bottom of the cake, because of the warmth of the restaurant, but at least it stayed on. I presented it on a cocktail server's tray. The Captain on the left is a laminated replica printed from the company's web page.
