Aside from the decapitated head cake that was requested of me for a certain someone’s Birthday party, I also needed a cake for him to have on the actual day.
Golf seems to be quite high on the priority list at the moment so a golf cake was the obvious choice.
This cake was very easy to make but I think (if I don’t say so myself) it looks rather professional.
Make your favourite cake in a ring tin and whip up some green icing.
The best ever chocolate mud cake is always our go-to for special occasions.
I used two tablespoons of butter whipped with icing sugar and green food colouring.
I also used a bit of milk to soften it.
Spoon the green icing into a piping bag with a star nozzle attached.
Starting from the middle, pipe little tufts of grass in circles.
You might also like our golf green cake.
I think it’s best to do full circles rather than do one side then the other.
It might end up uneven otherwise.
Now it’s time to make the golf ball.
I used one box of store-bought marzipan and rolled it into a ball.
With the end of a knife, I made small indents to make it more realistic.
I drew his star sign symbol on one side of the ball with writing icing and a Nike tick on the other side and voila!
I love making novelty cakes.
So far I’ve made a wine champagne glass, a piece of male anatomy (for a hen’s party), a ’21’ and a decapitated head.
What novelty cakes have you made?
hehe great cake for the total golf fanatic!
Cute cake! The only novelty cake I can recall making (apart from a gingerbread house) is a baby in a blanket cake for a birth.
Baby in a blanket sounds very impressive!
I seem to remember making many novelty cakes for small people!
It is lots of fun and very rewarding to see the smiles at the finished product!
……..way to go Claire!!
Hmm yes I seem to remember some pretty good cakes!!! Thanks mum!
