This is not my typical cake. We don't really drink alcohol here at the Atwater house. Especially not Crown Royal. I honestly can say I've never tasted the stuff! I just really don't like the taste of alcohol. But I did enjoy making this Crown Royal Cake.

My in-laws used to try to get me to drink wine - something they would often have with dinner and no matter how many times I took a sip - I just never could get into it. Yuck.
Give me sweet tea. Or Diet Coke. Or chocolate milk. Or even plain 'ole water. But wine? No thanks.
Anyway, I wasn't sure I wanted to even do this cake, but my sweet sister in law asked me to do it for her sister in law (not at all related to me) and well... I just love my sis-in-law, so I figured why not?
It's purple afterall. And I love purple. That's a good reason to do a cake, right?
PS. I don't recommend that you buy Funfetti cake mix from Amazon. It's outrageously expensive. I only linked to it just in case you weren't familiar with Funfetti cake. But really... who's never heard of Funfetti?
Anyway... a few more details...
The purple is homemade marshmallow fondant colored with Regal Purple Gel Coloring. I used white MMF for the trim and painted it with Gold Gel Glaze. The little red crown is Red Satin Ice Vanilla fondant. I printed out the Crown Royal logo then used an Xacto blade to cut it out and trace it out of fondant. I baked (2) 9x13 sheet cakes, then filled and stacked them so the cake was around 4" tall.
Did I miss any details? Do you have any questions about this cake? Please leave them in the comments!
