This Under the Sea themed cake was especially made for my friends' baby shower. It is decorated with adorable sea creatures, corals, shells, and sand. I truly enjoyed designing and making this cake for them. The parents to be and the guests absolutely loved the cake!
The cake is covered with light blue fondant. When I was coloring the light blue fondant, I added in a bit of turquoise color to give it that water/swirled effect. The shark and the dolphin are hand made out of gum paste. I used fondant to make the rest: the sea turtle, fishes, starfishes, corals, shells, etc. The sand is made out of crushed cookies. Graham crackers works real well but I used Maria cookies instead (by Iberia).
Here's the another view of the cake.
The cake flavor is dark chocolate cake w/ creamy peanut butter buttercream. You can't go wrong with that flavor combination. The cake was moist and delicious. It was a hit!
