50th Birthday Cake
by Esmarelda Ayres
Cow turns 50 cake
I made this unique 50th Birthday Cake when my friend turned 50. She wanted a something to look playful yet stylish. my friend's nickname is cow and the theme of the party was "Cow is turning 50" so needless to say I made a cow cake.....
Everything on the cake was edible except for the straw hat, the watering can and the bell.
From the editor:
Great cake Esmarelda. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
Esmarelda doesn't mention exactly what she used to make all the fabulous decorations on her 50th birthday cake, but here are a few ideas, if you would like to produce your own masterpiece:
* For the background on both tiers, you could either use buttercream with modeling chocolate or marshmallow fondant accents, or cover the entire cake in fondant or chocolate.
* To make the decorations, you could use either fondant, modeling chocolate or gum paste (just knead a little Tylose powder in to your fondant and it becomes gum paste).
