Hi all,

I have a request for a cake with a golf and a Scottish theme. I'm thinking of just doing a chocolate golf ball with grass in the middle, but does anyone have any easy/simple ideas of how I can incorporate the Scottish theme? I'm thinking plaid but that doesn't seem very easy! And this is just an 8" cake so I don't have much room for a whole lot of decoration.

Thank you!

how about putting a plaid ribbon around the bottom, or making thistles around the golf ball.

I did a plaid draped cake using some navy blue fondant, and then painted some colors on it (using the gel colors, watered down with a little clear vanilla). It didn't take too long, and it wasn't perfect, but seemed to look like a Scottish tartan.

Hope this helps! thumbs_up.gif

Perhaps a buttercream transfer or edible image?

(The cross on the ball is the Scottish flag.)

what about the cake pictures, but in one tie, with a little golf bag lying on top. You could make the golf bag plaid and that would incorporate both themes!

good luck!

Did you know that golfing was started in Scotland? I believe it was at St Andrews golf course. Maybe you could do something with that in mind?
