On to the cake.... the requirements were: Vintage Dude, red, black and brown, tractors, golf, boating, and horses. This sweet lady wanted her fiance's 50th birthday cake to show that things get better with age. His interests were all included in a subtle, vintage way.
Vintage tractor made of fruity pebbles treat covered with modeling chocolate.
See! Look how great Brandi is!! The crates are covered in a mixture of modeling chocolate and fondant. Hand made texture and shading to make that wood look real.
Rope made of fondant, anchor made of gum paste
Nails and texture
Golf club and ball. Both made out of gum paste
Gum paste horseshoe.
Had to get that "Vintage Dude" in there!
Life preserver made of gum paste.
This was such a fun cake to make with all the elements and variety! I really love taking an idea and bringing it to life! Happy birthday, Rick!
