Golf Birthday

This is a special cake! I recently reconnected with my best friend from the tender age of 8, and got the opportunity to do her father’s 60th birthday cake. An avid golfer, he is receiving a golf-inspired cake: single tier with layers of chocolate cake, raspberry jam, and dark chocolate buttercream. It’s iced in green vanilla fondant and decorated with fondant and gumpaste accents.
