This was for a gentleman's 50th birthday party. He is a big horse racing fan and his wife surprised him with this cake. She wanted something sophisticated and elegant using red, white and black with touches of silver. I used some racing silks as inspiration for the patterns and added the dragees for a neat metallic touch. Large fondant loopy bow with tails. There were also some horseshoes on the board which he likes and for good luck for the future.
