Being that he was relaxing and sunning himself on a gorgeous beach, we decided on a "Wish You Were Here" theme for the cake with a handmade sugar model of himself (complete with underarm hair!) on his Sunderland red and white striped beach towel wearing shorts and sunnies!!
The finishing touches included a palm tree, cheeky crab, a beach made from brown sugar and flowing blue waves surrounding the cake.
I was really happy with how it turned out and think he was very generous indeed!!
