Fishy Forty

The same friend who kept me busy right up until the end of December continued the theme in January with an early request for a fishing themed cake for her husband’s 40th birthday.

40th Birthday Cake

Each cake was a three layer Madeira, layered with strawberry jam and vanilla buttercream.

No Fishing signBig Fish and RocksAll the decorations were edible and hand crafted from fondant and royal icing.

There was far too much bulge on the sides of the cakes but over all I was quite happy with the finished item.

The ‘4’ shape was hand carved from a larger square and I think I did a good job of it.

The figure came out better than I’d anticipated and everyone remarked on the likeness!

I flippin’ love the edible fondant rocks and pebbles on this!  Apparently the children at the event did too…and dibbling their fingers in the blueberry flavoured pond 🙂
