Golf Green Cake

A family friend - who is an avid golfer and greens keeper at a golf course - turned a year older yesterday. To commemorate, we made a banana cake decorated with a golf's green. The birthday boy was genuinely surprised and only made a tiny "professional" comment: "in our circles, that would be called fertilizer burn, not a sand pit." At least we know better now, for improvements in the future!

Overview of the cake!

Hole #19 is the club house! Dig in and eat!

Check out the sand pit or "fertilizer burn."

Happy Golf-Cake Birthday!

Fortune Cookie Cupcakes

A friend of ours found a new job, and to say farewell to her old employers and employees, she asked us to make cupcakes! We made fortune cookies out of gum paste and inserted her unique personal notes. The green icing relates to the company's famous colour.

1. Paper towels help retain the shape.

2. Gum paste fortune cookies!

3. Packaged like Chinese dumplings.

4. Green icing on the cupcakes.

5. Gum paste fortune cookie toppers.
