CatFish Cake

I created a Blue Catfish Cake for a Birthday party, for a boy who loves to fish! As if you couldn't tell that.

This cake was made with a chocolate 4 layered head and a red velvet 4 layered body. The fins and knife are made out of gumpaste. The cake is covered in homemade marshmallow fondant and then hand painted! (Maybe one of these days I will invest in an air brush gun.) The wood base is two pieces of cardboard taped together with a piece of brown fondant over it, then I hand brushed brown to give it the wood look.

Now for the interesting part!

Inside the cake I placed green pudding with black tapioca pearls. It was a great texture and the overall combination was great!

More pictures to come of the cutting of the cake!

A big thanks to Mrs Toni! For giving me the opportunity to make these cakes and push my skills as a cake decorator!

OK, time for the additional pictures!
