Remains: Eddie Van Halen Cake

Ok so I can finally post the irony of the picture in yesterday’s post

I was in the middle of posting it when I realized I am the homicidal maniac LOL.  All along for weeks I had plans to make my brother’s birthday cake and here the post said somewhere out there is a homicidal maniac with a cake for him ha ha. I couldn’t add it to the post because I was determined to surprise my brother and make him a Eddie Van Halen inspired cake. I figured for his 40th it had to be pretty special and he really loves Eddie Van Halen.

I was really happy with the way it came out because I don’t normally decorate cakes. I have done a few in the past but it’s been a really long time. I was even happier with my brother’s reaction to it.

The cake itself was red velvet with Dr. Pepper (instead of oil and eggs) and the frosting was red vanilla frosting (thank god it’s Valentine’s day time and this was at the store because making that would have been a bitch). The black and white stripe designs inspired by Eddie’s guitar were just regular decorating icing from Michael’s. The cake was really moist and actually really good. I was nervous how it was going to come out cause I used the whole boxed cake mix with pop concoction.

Right after I finished decorating it.

  1. Congratulations on your new baby. He sounds terribly tiney. How long will it take for him to be big enough for the big boys tank? Beautiful ring, too.

    • Thanks Grace. It will take him a few months. I actually have a message into the forums to find out if he should be moved to say a 5 gallon or something once her reaches a certain size. Right now he is in a little beta 1 gallon but has plenty of room to swim.


Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make....
