Fore!



This cake was created for a 60th birthday party.  Both cakes are chocolate with vanilla buttercream.  The golf ball is covered with white fondant.  The dimples in the fondant were made with a dowel.  The tees are made from 50/50 fondant and gumpaste, and piped with colored royal icing.  

After further review, I would do the golf ball differently next time.  The weight of the fondant compressed the cake, distorting it's shape.  In addition, the dimples began to flatten out, making them less apparent, as time went on.  Next time I'll cover the ball in buttercream and impress the dimples right into the buttercream.
