This cake is three tiers of sour cream chocolate cake with peanut butter Italian meringue buttercream and crunchy roasted peanut praline. I wasn't sure about peanut butter buttercream when it was first mentioned but it is DELICIOUS and I will definitely be making it again!
The cake tiers are covered with green peanut butter flavored fondant with an ombre effect.
A fondant 'wood' sign is the perfect way to write happy birthday on an outdoor themed cake!
I love the little fish popping his head out of the water. I had initially wanted to have a wood boat with a fishing rod in the pond at the bottom of the waterfall but there just wasn't room so a fish pays tribute to the fishing hobby.
Making people from fondant has always been a challenge for me but I tried as best I could to make it look like Doug.
Happy 50th and I hope it is a great party!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
