Golf, in cake form

I made this cake this week for a 60th birthday celebration, inspired by Cakespace. Banana cake with caramelized banana filling and caramel Swiss meringue buttercream, covered in fondant. All of the decorations are made out of fondant. I really enjoyed working with all of the simple components and small details - from the golf bag to the tees and golf balls :)

unreal, as always, babe! and for those who are wondering, the banana cake is indeed quite delicious, based on the tiny sample i had when it was fresh out of the oven.
