I am making a beer mug cake and am wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I would go about making the "foam" on the top of the cake. I have heard cream cheese filling(?) and meringue so far. Also, I would like to use bc icing and etch ridges to make it look realistic. Any tips on etching in buttercream? I have yet to attempt it. Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated! Thank You icon_biggrin.gif

I made a German themed cake and put a beer mug on top (see my photos). I made my mug out of Rice Crispy Treats and then covered in fondant. The foam is just buttercream. I don't know if that will help but good luck!

Thanks! If I remember, I just cut the tip of a piping bag and piped the foam without a tip.
