Jake’s Birthday Cake!

Jake celebrated his birthday this week and I made him a cake!

Jake’s favorite kind of cake is red velvet so I set out to make him one – but instead of red, I made it blue! Two reasons for that. 1) Jake’s favorite color is blue and 2) I didn’t have any red food coloring. Ha.

Since we’re totally into collecting Funko Pops I got him this “Freddy Funko” happy birthday pop to be the cake topper. Isn’t it cute? “Freddy Funko” is Funko’s mascot in case you didn’t know!

Here’s what the inside of the cake looks like. I put in quite a bit of blue food coloring to give it this dark blue hue. I love how it turned out!

I also used the cake “leftovers” from when I leveled the cake for that “decoration” that on top of the cream cheese frosting. This was an awesome cake!

I used the recipe for both the Red Velvet Cake and frosting from Sally’s Baking Addiction if you want the recipe!
