90th birthday cake – gardening theme

Phil’s grandad turned 90 in January but he wasn’t well enough to celebrate his birthday so it was postponed until April.  So we all went over to a pub in Essex to celebrate.  Irene made a fruit cake for me to decorate and we agreed on his love of gardening and growing vegetables.  He’s also got a little pond in his garden, although perhaps this one is a bit too like a mini swimming pool.

One day I might learn about scale but for now I’ll keep making giant vegetables and ladybirds!

I also have to pay tribute to Jo at Icing on the cake for giving me lots of inspiration and ideas for this cake!
