Here's the latest novelty cake my husband and I have created. This time we were asked to do a golf themed cake for a 65th birthday.
I'm getting better at modelling with icing, each person I've had to sculpt has gotten better each time (I think I could've done better at positioning the golfer with his golf club, not sure holding a club like that will be very effective!).
I did have an 'OH NO!' moment whilst piping the shoes on though, my tiny piping bag full of black icing split and a great big blob of icing squirted out onto the cake! I quickly scrapped it off and managed to remove most traces of black but it had left a mark. Luckily it was quite near the edge so I could cover it up with buttercream and make the 'rough grass' a bit wider. Few! Panic over.
It was also my first attempt at writing with icing, which went better than I expected. No mishaps with the piping bag this time!
We've now got a small batch of green buttercream left, I guess we'll just have to whip up a few cupcakes to use it up - what a shame! Cupcake anyone?...............
