Google+ That Flour Child: 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall...

99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall...

... Take one down and pass it around.  Or take a cupcake with a beer bottle on it?  That too.

These cupcakes are perfect for a boy's 19th birthday (or 21st if you're in the US... sorry about that).  I made these for my boyfriend and he loved them.  I put him to the text to see if he could guess all the brands, and he could!  That meant to me that they were somewhat legible, which is a good sign.
I baked chocolate cupcakes from a box, and iced them with vanilla icing tinted blue.
I made the little beer bottles myself, using a mould I got from bulk barn and melting candy wafers (in white, red, blue and green).

I used snack size ziploc bags with a tiny hole cut in them to pipe in the labels.  Remember, whatever you want to see on top you have to pipe in first.  So i started with the small details of each label first, then piped in the label and the cap and then filled up the mould with milk chocolate once the piping had dried.  The only label I added on top of was the Labatt Blue, because I wasn't confident in my ability to write Blue backwards and in such a small area.
Ended up with 6 different beer bottles.

Coors Light, Dos Equis, Budweiser, Heineken, Labatt Blue and Pabst Blue Ribbon

I added these to the tops of the cupcakes and took them to wow my boyfriend.  He was so amazed and thought the chocolate beer bottles were delicious but not as good as actual beer.  Hey, I tried my best.
