Last year for Dad's birthday I made an ice climbing cake as that is one of his hobbies. It was one of the first cakes I had done so it's not great and a little child-like. Here's a photo -
Another of his hobbies is amateur photography so this year I made a model of his camera for his cake. It is not very professional as I have never been taught how to do it properly. I would love to do an evening class at some point in cake decoration and learn how to get smooth lines and sharp edges. Nevermind, here is the process in photos anyway.
