Travis has a friend, Jamie, and Jamie loves my cookies and cakes. Bobbi asked me if I would be willing to make him cookies and a cake for his 30th birthday party. Of course I would! Jamie has been such a good friend to Travis and Bobbi.
First I piped the greens and added a small pearl for the golf ball. When the green was mostly dry I piped on a brown line and a red flag laying on the ground. The sand trap is light yellow icing with pulverized vanilla wafer cookies and a bit of gold sanding sugar mixed in.
I let those two areas dry completely then piped the fairway area in darker green and immediately poured on dark green sanding sugar.
For the golf balls I piped white then immediately piped on grey dots then...
On the lower half of the grey I piped a white dot to make it look like the dimples. I had found this technique on Sweet Sugarbelle's website. She has such great tutorials.
I wanted to make more cookies so I cut out little golfball size circles and made more golfballs, tiny greens with a ball and hole and tiny fairways with a green and water hazard.
I always forget how much I enjoy using the bandsaw.
I know this looks so unsanitary but trust me I cleaned them really well and then sealed them with three coats of waterproof sealer.
I cut a stencil pattern for the tee box and put it over the cake after I skim coated it. While the pattern was on there I put on the sanding sugar onto the icing I had applied then pulled the stencil off.
Next I worked on the putting green.
I had my trees and decided to go ahead and put them in and if I didn't like it I could just pipe over the holes they made.
