Join Paul for this colourful highland cow cake...

In this week's tutorial, Paul shows us how to make this eye-catching highland cow. Inspired by the Scottish artist Steven Brown.

Originally made for Paul's Dad and his friend to donate towards Prostate Cancer UK. It uniquely ended up in the hands of the man who inspired it, Steven Brown, for his 21st birthday (or so he tells us).

Steven kindly donated a generous sum of money to prostate cancer UK for the cake which Tom (Paul's Dad) was ecstatic with. You can find out more about this story here.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to...

  • Create coloured fur
  • Ice a board
  • Carve and ganache
  • Create and put a board and stand together
  • and much, much more

Don't forget to share your interpretations of this wonderful cake with Paul and rest of the Sugarcraft community on our Facebook group.

Who knows? You may even end up featured in one of our monthly members' cake blogs.
