Howzat! A cake for a cricketer

Cricket Cake

A commission!

A friend asked me to create a cake with a cricket theme for another friend’s birthday. I spent much of yesterday covered in icing sugar and fondant.

I started with a basic Victoria sponge – triple layer – sandwiched together with butter cream and raspberry jam.

I made the little bat, ball, wickets, bales and pads out of sugar paste…

Then while they were drying out I marzipanned the cake and rolled out the plain white fondant.

I left this overnight and then this morning I assembled the cake and finished it off with a red ribbon and some iced scallops along the bottom. I do hope the cricketer likes it!
