1. Sketching and carving

Golf carts are similar to cars when it comes to creating a cake from the design. Paul first gets a load of images from google to get the various angles and dimensions, then sets about a rough sketch. It takes a few attempts, but then he’s ready to start carving.

2. Ganaching

Paul introduces a new amazing ganache using Gold Quintin chocolate from Carma. As Paul’s going to the party he wants to give this cake his best ingredients so also applies a generous coating of Baileys Irish Cream. He then applies a thin layer of dark chocolate ganache on the outside to keep everything in place.
