Golf Retirement Cake
This retirement Golf Cake was made with love for a friend retiring after 36yrs in the Public Service.
The cake was made with 4 Duncan Hines® Chocolate Fudge Cake mixes baked in 9x13 pans. The cakes were filled with Chocolate Fudge Pudding and covered with a chocolate butter cream icing with Green colored Vanilla Butter Cream icing accents as well as fondant accents and colored piping gel accents.
The characters/golf bag, cooler of beer/rocks and other accent pieces were made from fondant/gum paste mixtures. The ice in the cooler was white crystal sugar decorations. The rocks in the water are made by me from mixed color fondant, mixed to form tie-dye effect. some of the rocks around the pond are candy covered chocolate (purchased at bulk barn).
The trees are miniature ice cream cones on pretzel sticks, covered with star piped green royal icing (Wilton method)
The golf cart is fondant covered rice cereal treats. Writing on the golf cart and the flag is done with edible markers.
The sand is yellow and brown sugar mixed together. The flowers and reeds stands are multi-grain spaghetti sticks.
Everything on the cake is edible and made my me (except the paper umbrella).
From the editor:
I love all the details on your fabulous golf cake! Especially the ice cream cone trees. That's one of my favorite decorating tricks. It works for so many different themes: camping, Christmas, outdoors, lots of different sports themes...the list is endless.
Thanks for sharing.
