Cricket and Gardening Cake

After a big cake break I was asked to make this for a gentleman’s 80th. I was also given the theme of steam trains but (ahem) forgot about that! To be honest, it took me so long to come up with a design incorporating all three themes that I had to give up and lose the trains. Luckily my customer, a colleague, didn’t mind a bit. She was so emotional when she saw the cake – one of the best reactions ever! :-)

Just Perfect…..The top is just so clever, just like a wreath……it’s given me an idea for an upcoming cake where I have about 6 non-connected things to try and shove on it!

It’s lovely to see you back too :)

Thank you Storyteller cakes and Angela. Haha, Angela, yes this design was a bit of a cop out for me. I was originally going to make a garden / cricket field / country view with steam train running around cake but opted for this in the end. Wreaths are my comfort zone and all the decorations can be made ahead of time. :-) x
