“Our Home is still a Castle even though we don’t have any Grass” Birthday Cake

Our Home is still a Castle even though we don't have any Grass Birthday Cake

Our Home is still a Castle even though we don’t have any Grass Birthday Cake

It was my friend Anna’s birthday yesterday and her husband Kent texted asking if I’d like to drive by and wish her a Happy Birthday, crazy times right?  A drive by birthday hello.  So I asked if I could make her a birthday cake and Kent said that she’s been wanting sod laid at their new house and could I make a sod cake?  I said I’d have to thing about it.  How do you make sod visually pleasing on a cake?  My daughter and I put our heads together and came up with this which I think is pretty funny.  It made Anna laugh too so I guess it was a win!

The cake is made from this recipe here.

The “dirt” is granola ground up in the food processor.

The rolls of sod are green fondant.

I made chocolate ganache to go with the cake and you can find that recipe with the cake recipe, see link above.

Happy Birthday Anna!
