Designing a cake

Last weekend I was asked to design and make a cake for a friend's 60th birthday. This friends's hobbies include tennis, golf, cards, and cars. He also founded an investment club in our town. Well, it was a challenge to create a cake to support all his hobbies and without making it cluttered. I thoroughly enjoyed the process of custom designing the cake based on the person's hobbies and interests in mind. The birthday boy's favorite carrot cake is wrapped with fondant icing and all the decorations are made with gum past icing. Here are some images to share with you all.



Cards are made with gum paste

Race cars(only non-edible item on the cake)

And investment club
