I made this Golf Cake for my brother's 30th birthday and it was super easy!
It is made of 2 9 inch rounds and 2 8 inch rounds. The golf guy and flags were purchased from Wilton's and are plastic. The golf bag and little golf balls around the front are wax and also purchased from Wilton's. The sand trap is graham crackers that were put in the food processor. The all over icing is cream cheese icing that is tinted forest green and the grass is Wilton's Kelly Green decorating icing. You can also use royal icing' I just find it easier to buy it pre-made.
I stacked and iced all the cakes with the cream cheese icing. I then put on the sand trap and the golf guy. I put the Kelly green icing in a bag with a grass tip (Wiltons #233) and made the grass around the sand trap and golfer. Around the bottom I used Wilton's white decorating icing and piped it with a small star tip.
My 8 year old son inspired this fun creation. He is in a summer golf session and wanted this Golf Cart Birthday Cake for his birthday.
I got my inspiration for this cake from a Wilton cake book. I used a small rectangle cake pan. I cut out the middle part of the cake to represent the floor of the golf cart. I covered with buttercream icing and then cut in pieces of fondant. I used Popsicle sticks to hold up the roof of the cart. The roof was made out of graham crackers ( 1 sheet if I remember correctly ) and then covered with fondant.
The steering wheel was a metal flower nail covered with buttercream. Golf clubs were Popsicle sticks with fondant at the ends! Wheels were made of Oreo cookies with fondant and silver balls. Silver fenders were made of fondant and I used edible dust painted on with my fingers to create the chrome look.
I made marshmallow fondant to cover this Golf Birthday Cake (recipe can be found online and I have my own that is made a different way for some parts). I colored the grass green. I wanted the grass for the golf ball to be smooth like the golf course.
For the ball, I used a half of a ball pan from Wilton. I cut a straw in half and inserted both pieces into the square cake after fondant was applied and put the half ball on top. The straws were support so the weight of the ball would not sink into the cake later. The holes of the ball were made with a pencil eraser that was cleaned before doing the holes. I used some golf items we had at the house, and the flag is made from a straw with construction paper.
I made this Golf Ball cake for my golf enthusiast husband's birthday.
I used the Wilton sports ball pan and a 10x10 square pan. I used white cake mixes and followed the instructions for baking.
I then used white frosting for the ball, I let it sit for a few hours to harden a little before I put the dimples in the ball, it made it a little easier to add the dimples.
I tinted frosting green and then frosted the sides of the square cake smooth. I set the ball cake on top of the square cake and then using tip #233 I frosted the rest of the cake to look like grass. I also frosted around the bottom of the square cake where it touched the platter.
HUGE hit, as most of the family are into golf too!
