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!
