Birthday cake - Golf

Second order of July 

70th Birthday cake with a golf theme

This was a bit of a challenge seeing as I usually focus all my attention on cupcakes, but I was asked to do this themed birthday cake by a lady who found me on
I just couldn't turn it down!

The sponge was a plain sandwich filled with butter icing and covered with marzipan.
After leaving the cake to settle over night I covered the cake with a light green butter icing and darker green for the grass. 
The pond was made using piping jelly with a touch of blue colouring.

The sand again was made out of butter icing, using colourings I tried to get a very light brown colour.

Now the golf buggy was the big challenge, made out of sugar paste and four lollipop sticks.
The number plate represents the special birthday!

I really hope Laura and her family like it, I was very happy with how it turned out.

  1. Hi! Great decorations! I especially love the grass effect.

    Are you the same Carrina that I went to Rastrick High with?
