Argyle, Bow Tie & Moustache Cake

As a counterpoint to last week’s girly cake, I now present a very manly little cake for a manly little boy!

This was actually for a baptism, but could easily serve for a baby shower or birthday too (even for grown up, not so little boys with moustaches and bow ties of their own!).



Here’s the fully finished cake: the name plate on top is written in Greek for his baptism (fun fact – this is the second cake I’ve written on that I don’t know how to read.  I wrote “Happy Birthday” on this one in Armenian – I just have to trust they say what people tell me they do!)

  1. How did you manage to get the beautiful detailing on the argyle tier? are the lines hand painted?

    1. Hi Tan,

      Thanks! They are done by hand – I just used an edible marker (I use both the Wilton and the Americolor brands), and kept the lines straight by following a cardboard template that I moved around the cake as I worked. It’s actually not a difficult technique, just time consuming. Give it a try, and let me know how it turns out!
