I meant to post this cake BEFORE showing my new cutters but an early start fried my brain yesterday so... here's the Aston Villa cake for a 40th birthday. The recipient is an Aston Villa fan (obviously!) and the cake was commissioned by his wife for his surprise birthday party. The design was based on a cake I made for my mother-in-laws partner Derek when he turned 70 but I modified the scarf positioning and went with claret and blue lettering. The football on the top was made using the sphere cake tin as mentioned in the post earlier this week.
