Golfing Doctor's 60th Birthday Cake & Cupcakes

I made this cake for a surprise 60th birthday for my late husbands partner. They had practiced together for more than 25 years, so I wanted to make something special that reflected his love of golf and medicine. My inspiration came from Nancy’s Cakes and Beyond’s lovely cake she made a few months ago. I made the argyle pattern on the top tier by cutting out individual diamond shapes, and putting them together using Jessica’s wax paper transfer method. It worked amazing. Everything is edible except for a few toothpick and the candle. This is the first time I have taken a picture outside. Boy, it makes a world of difference!! Thank you for looking!

Wow Toni I love it! The argyle looks awesome! You did an amazing job on this cake. I think you may have perfected that transfer trick! ;-)

-- Diane, South Eastern Connecticut,

Thank you so much Benni and Diane. The argyle pattern was time consuming, but worth the effort.

-- Toni, Pennsylvania,

What a labor of love! A beautiful cake with a gorgeous background… yes, you are absolutely right about pictures being taken outside!

OMG, this is just breathtaking… the entire thing ROCKS!!! I’d love to learn about Jessica’s wax transfer method – where can I find it? It worked like a charm.

Congratulations – you outdid yourself.

this is so great and also very good of you to give credit to Nancy for the inspiration (not everyone does that!). Wonderful work and the birthday boy must have been so thrilled! That Argyle stuff is not as easy it may look…! really well done. x

Oh my goodness!! Thank you everyone for the lovely comments!! I was away for the day celebrating a 1st birthday that I made cupcakes and smash cake for. Will post it tomorrow.

DJ, I took Jessica’s Craftsy class. The wax paper transfer method used to be on her blog, but I’m not sure if it is still there since she did the Craftsy class. I love how it works. I also used it on my last monkey cake to do all of the polka dots.

-- Toni, Pennsylvania,

This is amazing! Really well thought of!
