It has been an exciting year for 21st birthdays and Byron’s Tennis Cake was a 21st birthday cake I created earlier this year for his celebration with his family. I have know Byron for a few years now and it was great to be able to make a small sugar figurine and try and capture some of his characteristics. Of course the easy ones were his dark good looks, thick curly dark hair and 5 O’Clock shadow typical of all students these days! Wendy, his mom, asked me to do a tennis themed cake as this is one of Byron’s incredible talents and passions in life. I placed the Byron sugar figurine sitting on a delicious chocolate tennis ball cake which I covered in a mix of fondant and modelling chocolate and embossed to create a tennis ball texture. I also created the line and then painted it with white edible paint and added small moulded tennis racquets and grass to finish off the cake. It was such fun making this cake Byron and congratulations on your 21st birthday and you can be proud of how you have taken your talents and passions into your varsity life and continued to be an inspiration to and admired by all those who meet you.
