I Mustache You A Question…

Mustaches have swept the nation! I am not sure where the trend started from but it grabbed my attention! I am highly amused by the finger mustache and puns involving them (see title).  For my usual Sunday Funday baking extravaganza I try to bake something homemade. Well, this week I  didn’t have time so I resorted to boxed cake and store bought icing to make an awesome mustache cake! When making this cake on your own, go ahead and use whatever flavor cake and I dare you to get wild with the icing color! Maybe a blonde mustache? This cake is so simple to make and you’re going to say to yourself “Why didn’t I think of that?!” With how popular mustaches have become this cake is bound to please all age groups!

For this cake you will need…

  9 inch round cake pan

Sharp knife

Icing Spatula

Toothpick or fork

 

Ingredients

Prepare the cake according to the directions on the box or per your recipe

 

Directions

  1. Bake cake according the recipe
  2. Remove cake from pan
  3. Let the cake cool completely
  4. Lightly outline a ying-yang swirl onto the cake (by doing this it will ensure that it is centered and even. No one wants a lopsided mustache).
  5. Once your line are perfect carefully cut the cake with a sharp knife
  6. Carefully arrange the cake by flipping one side so the rounder edges are touching (I arranged mine on a cookie sheet because it was easier to transport)
  7. Generously apply the icing (don’t worry about it being perfect)
  8. Use a toothpick or a fork to create hair like lines in the icing
