Five days before the deadline, I received a request for a custom blue drip cake, with vanilla and chocolate layers, as well as vanilla buttercream. This was for Joe, who was turning 10 on the weekend. His favourite colour is blue, and it was a “youtube” themed birthday (I’m not sure exactly what that meant!). I was excited to get creative, since most drip cakes I have made have actually been completely chocolate.

I spent some time after work sketching out the idea and looking at pinterest for some inspiration. I always start with baking the cake layers first. For 12 people, I wanted to ensure everyone got generous portion sizes.
