We decided to recreate his favourite pass time. The chair is the cake which is our vanilla cake with a lemon curd & vanilla mousse filling.
His screen saver shows a birthday wish. The lamp shade is made from gum paste over a fondant covered dowel. The side table is also a fondant covered dowel with a round cardboard disc to form the table with a fondant table cloth. We also added a fondant afghan and rug to complete the scene.
His mug of coffee and his cross word & pencil are made from gum paste. We covered the board with chocolate fondant to create the hardwood floor and added our birthday wish.
We wish Tom a very happy birthday and many more to come!
