July 5th is my father’s birthday and my parents often visit me in NJ around that time. It has become almost a tradition that I make him a birthday cake every year. He absolutely loves the Entenmann’s yellow cake with chocolate fudge frosting, so I wasn’t surprised when I asked him what flavor he wanted and he told me to make it like the Entenmann’s cake. I did just that, a yellow cake layered with chocolate ganache and covered in chocolate fondant.
Since my parents now live in Florida I decided to make a tropical birthday cake. I airbrushed a tropical sunset scene on top (since my parents now live in Florida and my father loves it there) with a blue seashell border around the bottom to finish it off.
