For my next big cake I'm doing my in-laws 25th anniversary cake. I get to use fondant and try to do my second two tier cake. I'm even going to try making gumpaste flowers. It should be fun!

50th Birthday Golf Cake
This post is a few weeks late, but a lot happened between now and then that got in the way of sitting down to post. I offered to make my stepdad's 50th birthday. My mom suggested a golf theme, and I looked through pictures online of neat golf cakes that I thought I could do. I knew I couldn't use fondant so I was a little more limited in design. I found one similar to this one except it had indentions for the golf ball on the white zero and didn't have the "grass" around the cakes. I got a new cake pan for these which allows you to make any number or letter. They're a little block like, but that could be fixed by carving them a little. The cakes are two different flavors. The 5 is Devil's Food from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook with buttercream, and the 0 is Spice Cake from Rose's Heavenly Cakes with a modified version of her Dreamy Creamy White Chocolate frosting. I just add extra powdered sugar until I get it to a consistency that works for me. I really liked the way the cakes turned out. They were both incredibly rich.
