Shotgun Birthday Cake


Jennifer’s father is an avid rifle, shotgun and bow hunter so she made this appropriately themed cake for his 60th birthday.

The brown blobs : deer droppings :) Tasty.

Num num.

Happy Birthday Jen’s dad!

Many thanks to Rolf for sending me the photo.

    Perhaps next year Jen could bake a Dessert Eagle. Geddit?…No?…There’s no pleasing some people.

  • Matt Groom

    How did she make the shells? I assume the rocks are rock candy. That’s the coolest cake I’ve seen since Lego Block cakes came out!

  • Heath

    That’s actually pretty darn cool!

    That is one lucky dad and he has one lovely girl! Jennifer needs to go shooting with her dad regularly to make him even happier than he already is.
