I was asked to make a cake for a friend’s Pop’s 70th Birthday, a sheep farmer. After looking at a few ideas, a two-tiered black & white cake (citrus and milk choc mud) with sheep decorations and the words “Happy 70th Pop” was decided on.
The bottom tier was a 25cm milk chocolate mud with milk chocolate ganache and fondant icing. The top tier, a 20cm citrus mud with white chocolate ganache and fondant icing. Each tier had black and white polka dot ribbon. The cake board was also covered with plain white fondant. The lettering was made using alphabet cutters and modelling paste. The sheep are hand modelled using modelling paste. The stars were created using a small star cutter, modelling paste and wooden skewers which had been painted using Wilton black colouring paste.
All cakes, fondant and decorations were hand made in Mudgee by me. I hope that this cake was enjoyed by all!! Thanks Kim and Dan for allowing me to create this cake for your Pop!!
