Golf Bag birthday cake!

This past week was my nephew Vincent, also my Godson, celebrated his13th birthday. For the past couple of years his love for golf has grown and will be following his passion for it this year as well with continuing lessons. You never know we might have a young Arnold Palmer in the making. Since this was a milestone birthday entering the tender teenage years, my sister-in-law threw Vincent a family birthday party Saturday night and asked if Mel & I could surprise him with a golf themed birthday cake.  Of course hubby & I along with Mel, Phil and Jackson were all going to be there to help celebrate Vincent's coming of age.  Mel & I were thrilled with the way the cake turned out and with the comments and expressions on every one's faces when we arrived with the cake said it all.  We kept the cake out of Vincent's view for a little while until it was time to sing happy birthday and he was thrilled when he saw his cake.  Here are a few pictures of the cake;

The golf bag and hat are chocolate cake with a french vanilla mouse filling. The golf  bag is covered in chocolate fondant while the hat is covered in regular MMF.  The golf clubs and all other details are moulded from fondant and painted with edible food colours. The flag is made from gum paste/fondant mix and the grass is done in butter cream. The cake was a big hit and according to all the guests the cake was moist and delicious.  It was a fun cake to make and an honour to make it for Vincent.

Happy 13th Birthday Vincent!

We Love you!  Hope you enjoyed your cake and your special day!
