This cake was a sour cream chocolate cake iced in a vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream and covered with white chocolate fondant with a matching smash cake for the birthday boy to play with.
I think of all the gumpaste animals on this cake, the sheep are by far my favorite...
Although I rather like this cow too... although I'm not sure he's in a healthy position. Doing yoga, perhaps?
The fence posts are made with fondant as are the bunches of hay. The lettering was done with fondant and the "1" topper was done with gumpaste.
It's a relief to know after a two month break that I can still make cake! Now if I could only find time to do it more often...
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
