The aim of this unusual birthday cake was to create a big and bold design, but at the same time something light-hearted and personal for Mark, a farmer. A keen shooter who has always had problems getting rabbits, I made the most of his choice of a chocolate sponge to reflect the colours and landscape of the countryside. A perfect little model of Mark, down to his glasses and shooting outfit is clearly having a rest on a bale of hay while the pesky rabbits pop up around the base of the cake, cheerfully nibbling on carrots and enjoying themselves! Each little rock and blade of grass was created individually and Mark's lovely hunting companion, Jake, is sitting faithfully at his master's feet! Mark was delighted with the level of detail on the cake and of course, its beautifully moist and rich chocolate texture. A very satisfied customer!
