Connor turns 4

Happy Birthday Connor!

It's been four years since our little man came into the world.

Once again, I was honored to be chief cakebaker. Connor wanted a golf cake, so....Mimi made a golf cake. Connor loves golf and has his own real set of lefties (only in golf though?) I took pictures of him a couple weeks before and chose two.

Here's how I did it:
The cake is two cake mixes--half chocolate half vanilla. Just mix each mix in separate bowls. Then, if you have a willing hubby, pour both mixes into your pan at the same time, and voila a perfect split. The decorating is the fun part.

I dyed coconut for the "rough," used green frosting for the"fairway," and green sugar for the"green." I poked a straw into the green to make the hole. Then I cut a piece of straw to go back in the hole to make the cup. I used one very small gum ball for the golf ball. The flags are all printed, laminated, and cut out. I glued them to sucker sticks. For the candles, I used four practice balls. My hubby drilled a hole in and I glued each to a tee, using white fimo clay to hold the candle in place. I printed the photos I took of Connor, laminated and cut them out, and selected one to put into place.

As you can see by the by the smile on his face, Connor loved it!
