Wrist Watch Birthday Cake | DIY Cake

Birthdays, birthdays, birthdays! So many in our family during the summer months! This past weekend we celebrated my DH 40th Birthday... I knew I had to come up with something that he loved, and surprise him with it. Since he is a huge wristwatch lover and collector of many, I thought a watch cake would be perfect. Here is the cake replica of one of his favorite watches. By the way, he loved this surprise!

The cake was vanilla flavored, baked in 11x11 square pans and then just cut the corners to get this shape. Frosted with a vanilla buttercream icing and covered with fondant.

This was probably one of my most detailed cakes, only because of the hand piping. Took about 6 hours from start to finish. I wanted to finish it before my husband got home so I skipped lunch... bad move because I was starting to get a little shaky by the end as you can tell in my writing, haha!

I hope you like my hubbies 40th Hublot watch cake. I had a lot of fun creating it! Thanks so much for coming by!

Happy Baking  :)
