golf themed birthday cake

this cake was for my boss’s birthday several years ago, he’s a real golf aficionado. 

i honestly can’t remember what flavor the cake and filling were, but that’s not really the important thing here. this was the first time i experimented with homemade marshmallow fondant and…it was a DISASTER. it was chunky and greasy and weird, definitely turned me off to trying MMF for a few more years, but i have since found a much better recipe.

anyway, back to the cake, it’s covered in green fondant and i used blue cut out triangles to make the argyle pattern. the embellishments (grass, ball, water feature, white dots and hole) are all just royal icing. then i used brown sugar for the sand traps. i didn’t end up wasting all that terrible MMF though, i used it to cover the base and it worked out fine.
