3D Fish Cake

Finding it easy to make the dinosaur cake for my daughter's birthday, I ventured into another project for a family members birthday. I was given a task of making some kind of fish cake, along the lines of a bass fish or fishing cake. Originally they had asked for a basic sheet cake with some sort of fishing theme related to bass fishing. I was able to come up with the bass fish itself looking at a picture of one and building the cake around that image. Using the same basic principles as the dinosaur cake I was able to move the cake sections around to the shape I wanted and used frosting to create the details of the fish. This one was a little more difficult to frost, and the pictures were taken before completed with all detail, but you can pretty much see the outcome. In the end, I had a lot of fun doing it, despite being up late that night and ending up with the full blown flu the next day, my family members got their cake on time!
