This month Dave turned 40.
His mother ordered his birthday cake having decided that the Sheep Cake that I've made before was perfect. As Dave is from Gloucestershire but now lives elsewhere he quite often receives stick from his friends for his Gloucestershire farmers accent! So his mum asked that the cake feature a tractor and the quote "Get orf my land!" (said in my best farmers accent!).
I've named him Dave as everyone knows a Dave, well I certainly do.
He is carved from Vanilla sponge with Raspberry Jam filling to make his big nose and small head. Decorated with sugar fondant curls for hair which are so much fun to make, I love his sheepish smile and the slightly shocked expression in his eyes, as if ending up on a cake board was the last thing he was expecting :)
