Gun and Garden Birthday Cake - Guest Post By: Michal (michalmarie.com)

There are many cake lovers, makers, bakers and even eaters in the growing community of sweets, each with his own style and technique. I find it more than enriching to interact and meet those talented artists, perhaps grow a small community of "cakers", so appropriately called. That's why I'm happy to meet Eftychia, she sweetly (no pun intended) agreed to do a post swap. Her initial guest post on my site was a unique take on the art of mosaic pieces. This was a great start for our hopefully continual cake-ship!

Now, I give back what I like to call- Gun and Garden.


The world of gardening, shooting and those things unfamiliar became just the very opposite when I had to come up with a cake for He who likes both. Yes, my father in-law was having a Birthday and I was making the cake. I wanted to practice my patience and decided to make some gum paste figures.

I painted the fence with cocoa powder and water paste. Therest of the details on top were made with gum paste- fondant dough (about 1part fondant to 2 parts gum paste). The garden soil is coffee grounds with aslab of brown painted underneath to make sure it is solid brown.
