A Penny for Your Thoughts

I make a lot of the same theme cakes. Of course I love making them all, but it's nice when I get a request for something different. A co-worker wanted a birthday cake for her dad. He collects coins, so she wanted a 1943-S penny. I guess it's a rare coin. I don't know anything about coin collecting, but I was excited to make this cake! Instead of "In God We Trust" I put her dad's name. And instead of 1943, I put his birth year.


  1. My dad's birthday is this week and this is the exact cake he wants! I am making it tomorrow. I did a practice cake and am wondering what you used to get the color this way? Thank you!!

  2. I used bronze pearl dust mixed with vanilla extract. :)
