Last week I had to come up with a cake for my Uncle's 60th Birthday, it was a joint celebration with another Uncle's Father-in-law...confused? Both men enjoy fishing so I was asked to create something around that, at first I was going to do a boat... but I thought that was a bit too easy, so hello 3D carved fish cake!
I really need to invest in an airbrush as this seemed to take forever to paint by hand, the fins and tail I made last so I could shape them once I attached them to the cake.
The board I also covered with icing, added the woodgrain detail and painted over some dark brown food colouring then trimmed it with brown satin ribbon. I made this the day before so it had plenty of time to dry out before adding the cake.
Inside was delicious chocolate mud cake, the little birthday note is also icing and written on with an edible pen.
This was delivered to a private party in Warwick on Saturday afternoon,
"Happy 60th Birthday Big Al & Jim!" I hope you enjoyed cleaning this one up ;)
