Choc cake, vanilaa cake, Satin Ice fondant and lots and lots of time!
What was your inspiration?
40th birthday cake for a sports fan. Didn't want to go down the cutesy character cake route, so took inspiration from Marina's course.
What are you most proud of?
The fondant football ribbons.
Made ribbon from stripsof fondant and textured it with tulle fabric. Cut out each football individually using tappit and hand painted black pentagons on the balls.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is so much fun to make and I wish I had gone larger with the cake (as it was I made more cake than was needed). Was restricted on budget so couldn't go mad with dummy cakes.
Make lots and lots of bows and loop! You can always store any spare ones for future projects.
