Beer Bucket Cake: Reddit User Shows Off Tui IPA Masterpiece (PHOTO)

You know the feeling: you reach for a cold, refreshing beer from the ice bucket, and it turns out to be birthday cake? Maybe not. But with a cake this amazingly realistic, we can see how you might be fooled.

Reddit user Bearsharktopussy (kudos, Bearsharktopussy for whatever lightning bolt of inspiration inspired that user name) showed off this beer bucket cake, apparently made by a friend's mother. We've seen beer bucket cakes before, but the incredible thing about this one is everything, from the isomalt ice cubes to the sugar glass beer bottle, appears to be totally edible.

There appear to be some differing opinions on the post about how awesome this is, mostly in relation to haters of the beer this cake pays homage to -- Tui IPA. Tui, a New Zealand brew, appears to have both rabid fans and equally enthusiastic detractors. Clearly, the person who got this cake for their birthday is a pretty big fan.

Have an amazing birthday cake to share? We're always on the lookout, so let us know in the comments!
