How to Make an Alcohol Cake for a Friend's 21st Birthday


The 21st birthday is a much-anticipated time for many young people. That birthday marks when a person can legally drink alcohol and get into a bar. Because of that, many 21st birthday parties revolve around alcohol. When you are throwing a 21st birthday party for a friend, consider baking a cake that has an alcohol theme, so that you keep the spirit of the party in the cake. A martini glass cake is simple enough for even inexperienced bakers.

Things You'll Need

  • Square cake
  • Serrated knife
  • Cake platter
  • Loaf cake
  • Pink frosting
  • White frosting
  • Wooden skewer
  • Cherries
  • Place your square cake on a clean, flat surface. Use your serrated knife to cut the square cake into a triangular shape. This shape will be the top part of your martini glass. To make the triangle, simply cut two diagonal lines on the cake that meet to form a point.

  • Place the triangular part of the martini glass onto the cake platter.

  • Take your long, loaf-shaped cake and cut it with the serrated knife, so that you have a one-inch strip that is as long as the cake. Your loaf cake will likely be thicker than your triangular cake, so cut the strip so that it is the same height as the other.

  • Place the strip of cake just below the triangular shape to serve as the stem of the martini glass.

  • Cut a 3-inch-long strip from either cake, making sure that it is the same height as the other cakes. Place the strip perpendicular to the stem of the martini glass to serve as its base.

  • Frost the triangular section of the cake with pink frosting. Frost the stem and base of the cake white.

  • Place several cherries onto a long wooden skewer and place it diagonally across the pink section of the cake so that it looks like a swizzle stick stuck into the martini.
