TENNIS COURT CAKE

Delivered this cake today to the Country Club where I used to work. It is a chocolate cake with hazelnut crunch, vanilla buttercream and french silk mousse as the fillings. Covered it with Vanilla buttercream and fondant. The tennis racquets and tennis balls are made out of gumpaste.
The netting is royal icing and the poles are gumpaste. Piped the net, let it dry over night and the next day I turned it over and piped it again just to make it extra strong

Beautiful, wow! Almost too pretty to eat. Almost :o) As you can tell, I'm not a big fan of the phrase "too pretty to eat". At the end of the day, a cake is meant to be eaten, right?
