Gardener's cake

An accident-prone gardener cake. I made this cake for a friend's husband who is a keen gardener but rather accident- prone, hence the bandaged hand and hose tangled around his ankle. I really enjoyed all the modeling involved making the plant pots, watering can, various garden tools and topiary. My sugar craft gun was extremely useful for the hose, handles and bands around the tops of the pots. I used brown sugar for the soil. To make the silver metallic look I modeled in grey sugar paste then sprayed with pearl edible lustre , easier than using white and having to paint it all carefully with silver edible colour.
