This was a last minute order squeezed in last week for a LFC fanatic – I didn’t get to meet the recipient but met his lovely girlfriend and little girl. I would have liked to put more detail on the actual shirt now I have seen the picture. Sometimes, you have to go with the time I had (which was practically non-existent!).
The little player was made from sugarpaste with marzipan skin and had a number 30 on his back. He even had a tiny Liverpool Football Club badge on his shirt. This was made with sugar edible paper.
The board was made grass-like by pushing tin-foil into the soft sugarpaste and then pushing extra through a sieve and sticking around the edge of the cake. Be warned this can take a long time!
