90th Birthday cake – tea and a crossword
Eimear ordered this cake for her Dad’s 90th birthday. They were having a family party for him and wanted something fun for his cake. He loves crosswords and always has a cup of tea by his side. So I handmade a little model of him from modelling paste, along with a crossword in the newspaper and a cup of tea in his hand. I made his little glasses from wire, so they’re obviously not edible! I also made a silver “90″ and a spray of stars bursting out of the cake behind him. Apparently the model ended up looking just like him!
The cake itself was a 9″ vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream.
