cake time!

The better half is obsessed with fine watches; I was even thinking of making a replica of his Panerai out of cake for his birthday next year. This weekend a friend's wife beat me to the punch - she requested a replica of her husband's IWC watch for his birthday. The watch box was made of lemon cake with raspberry icing and covered in fondant.

The watch base and straps were made from gumpaste while the watch face was printed on edible paper using vegetable dye inks. Everything was shaped and textured by hand!

Happy birthday Geoff, I hope time continues to treat you so well!
