GOLF INSPIRED BIRTHDAY/ FATHERS DAY CAKE
My hope was to share this cake yesterday, but I didn’t get home until after 9pm. However, it was such a hit, you get to see it today! Today is my Dad’s birthday (Happy Birthday Pops!); but he had plans today so we celebrated yesterday afternoon. Overall it was a very Golf themed birthday; he got golf clothes, golf balls, tickets to a golf tournament, a golf cake, and today he’s…wait for it…golfing (shocker!)
The tournament tickets and golf cake were my contribution and I think they went over quite well. It was also pretty easy since I used store bought cake and mix. The love was in the decorating.
1 Box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix (plus eggs, oil, water, etc)
2 Cans Vanilla Frosting
Green Food Coloring
Cake Decorating ‘Grass’ Tip (bought at Michael’s for less than $2) & Pastry/Plastic Bag
Small Juice Glass
Since I would be transporting the cake,I also purchased some disposable 13×9 baking tins. They worked out great since they came with a plastic lid and my dog wasn’t able to attack it in the car on the drive to my parents house. Although, he did some major sniffing and had his eye on it the whole time.
Following the boxed instructions, I made a Dark Chocolate Cake in the lightly greased tin. I actually made this cake on New Years Eve, allowing it to cool overnight so I could frost it first thing yesterday morning.
