Caddyshack Gopher with Golf Ball Cake

Those of you who attended the Charity Golf Classic and Carnival last weekend at the Aliso Viejo Country Club may have just seen this little guy in person.  Plumeria Cake Studio donated 200+ cupcakes to support the American Heart Association, MDA, and some other great charities.  Not only did I get to come up with this fun display (complete with astroturf), but I also got to make a "display cake" to celebrate their event theme: Caddyshack.  The "cake" was actually molded rice krispie treats covered in royal icing.  All the other details on the gopher's face were made with fondant, the eyes and nose covered with piping gel for a little shine.  The golf ball was molded out of white chocolate, and the flag cut out of gumpaste.  It was a fun project and a great day.  Thanks AVCC!!
