Cricket Bat Cake

For David's 50th Birthday his family ordered him a cricket bat cake. 

At first the customer was unsure whether the cake needed to be created around his own bat or whether it just needed to be a cricket bat cake in general but when David's wife was asked, she confirmed, saying "Oh yes, he loves that bat more than me!".  Typical man! ;)

 So I was sent photos of his bat showing all the details of the nicks and scuffs of years gone by so I could make his cake as accurate as possible.

These are the pictures I received...

The cake was filled with the classic vanilla sponge and raspberry jam and the ball was created from rice crispie cake also known as RCC's in the trade, it took me a while to decipher this abbreviation so I felt the need to share the knowledge with you!

There was quite a bit of hand painting and a steady hand required for the Newbery logo but it was worth it to get it spot on.

Here's the finished cake...

David loved it; according to the customer he didn't want to cut it, and instead ate the ball first!!
