How to Make a Golf Cake

Easy instructions for making a golf cake:

Bake an eight inch two layer cake. Ice it in white buttercream icing. With white icing and star tip size #18, make a shell border around the top and bottom edge of the sides of the cake.

With green icing and the same size star tip, outline the golf green on the top of the cake. Fill in the green by sprinkling green sugar on the golf green. Green sugar is made by putting a few tablespoons of sugar in a ziplock bag and adding a few drops of green food coloring. Then seal the bag and squeeze it until the sugar turns green.

Make the flag in hole with a toothpick an piece of colored paper cut in a triangle shape glued to the top.

The golf ball is a large white icing dot made with round tip #5. Just squeeze the icing bag, but do not lift the tip up.

With green icing and star tip size #18, write at different angles on the sides of the cake different golf phrases such as Hole in One, Birdie, Eagle, Fore etc.

I pressed miniature golf clubs (found at a craft store) around the phrases on the side of the cake.

Finally using green icing and round tip #5, write your message on the top of the cake.
