Golf Cake

I think that any time you are given a choice of making a cake around someone's job or their hobby, you should always choose the hobby.  That's just my humble opinion.  That being said, I made a 50th birthday cake for a golfer.  That's right...hobby.
 First, stack two layers of cake.

Then cut a divot out of the top edge and flipped it over to make a hill.   So with conserving all of the cake you get a nice contoured golf course.  At least it will look like a golf course in a minute.
Add a little crumb coat.
Frost the whole cake with grass green.
Spread a little light green for the putting green and a little light brown for the sand trap.

Viva smooth.
I used a large fondant pearl for the golf ball and dusted the sand trap with a little yellow gold luster dust.

Finish it off with an inscription and a little grass piped around the bottom.  I also made a little flag out of yellow candy melts but forgot to take a picture of it.  Oops!

After that, all I have to say is.....Fore!
