Golf Birthday Cake

Brief:

This cake was for my dad’s birthday being a golf fan, it only seemed right to make a golf themed cake.

The Cake:

The single tier cake was a vanilla sponge filled with vanilla buttercream and a strawberry jam.  The cake was then covered with a dark green fondant icing.

The Design:

I wanted the cake to look like a golf course with a golfer playing.  I therefore used a slightly lighter green fondant on the cake to look like a putting green.  I used cake wire covered with white fondant and a red flag for the hole. I had made my fondant golfer around five days in advance which gave him a chance to dry out and harden.  I secured the golfer and golf club bag to the cake with cake wire inserted into the fondant model and into the cake.
