Remember this cake? I did this Chuck Taylor cake a couple of years ago for Tommy’s birthday. Check out the original blog here: https://cakesbykat.wordpress.com/2010/06/25/converse-chuck-taylor-cake/
Well, guess what time of year it is! Tommy’s Birthday! This year he turned 65. He’s a collector of coins-specifically the Morgan Silver Dollar. These coins are collected in cases with the coin on the bottom and the coin details, rating (in this case, 65), and bar code on the top. After making my own gum paste, I created a very large replica of a Morgan Silver Dollar (by strategically placing layer after layer of gum paste and sculpting it), piped the edging and some other details, and then used the Duff Goldman edible silver spray paint to finish it off.
Happy Birthday, Tommy!
