Show-stopper 80th birthday cake

Margie 80
Three-tier sponge cake: one chocolate, one lemon, one vanilla, with piped birthday greeting, Decorated with handmade sugar golf balls, golf tees, playing cards, and sunflowers. Topped with star-shaped candles and edible golden star shower.

This cake was made for the 80th birthday of a lady who threw a big party for all her friends.  She has spent much of her life raising money for hospices, she continues to play golf weekly and is a demon bridge player.  All these activities were symbolised by the sugar decorations on the cake.
