I made this cake for a golf pros and tennis gals themed party of mine a number of years ago. Admittedly, it was not my best cake (looks-wise), but it was still pretty darn cute!
How it was made:
-Made a cake in a very large rectangular pan, baked, allowed to cool
-Cut out the racquet & golf club shapes (connected) out of the cake & two round circles for the “tennis ball” and “golf ball”
-Spread white frosting over all the cut-out pieces (except the tennis ball), decorated handle/bottom of club & racquet outline with decorators gel
-Scooped out about 1/2 a cup of white frosting into a bowl & added yellow food coloring, then decorated tennis ball with the yellow frosting & decorating gel
-Sliced pieces of Twizzlers for the racquet strings
Voila- a tennis/golf cake!
Now for a cake I’d like to make…
I have a number of friends who are pregnant right now, so when I saw this cake it cracked me up. My thinking is that it is boarder-line inappropriate to make for a baby shower, but what do you think? Funny or poor taste….or depends on the mother-to-be’s sense of humor?
