Serving up a happy birthday

Tennis 60th bday Greg Byers (2)My friend Greg was celebrating a significant birthday and his partner Bonnie asked me to make a cake to mark his special day.
Greg loves all manner of things including music and politics, but he’s especially fond of tennis. When I suggested a funny spin on a tough match, Bonnie thought it would be an amusing way to poke fun at his getting to the ripe old age of 60.
Here’s a fondant version of poor, exhausted Greg after an especially gruelling tennis match. He laughed when he saw it and said it was the best cake ever.
Here’s to many more tennis matches dear Greg!
