An Alamo Birthday Cake for a Texan

Close up Alamo Cake Alamo Birthday CakeThis Texas-themed birthday cake is for my favorite Texan.  Topped by a 3-dimensional recreation of the famous Alamo in San Antonio and completed with a landscape of prickly pear and saguaro cacti, the cake also features the Texas state flag.  It is made from his favorite cake, a rich chocolate sour cream pound cake, iced with vanilla bean Swiss meringue buttercream, and filled with a home-made raspberry conserve buttercream.
