icon_eek.gificon_rolleyes.gif i am sure i saw the cutest picute on a post at cake central that was a tacke box then a fish on the same cakeboard...it had "sand" and fishing lures on it. i looked under photo gallery but couldnt find it. i would like to make that for a fisherman this weekend. any help would be appreciated. i was going to print it out or save it to look at later but kids needed me and i didnt.... ...probably it was an older post because i like to go back and read everything that i missed before i knew about this wonderful site!
thank you!

Yes, I had to do some searching but I found it. It is under the galleries in Wedding Cakes / Groom's cakes, and it is currently the third row down in the middle of the row. It is made by peacockplace.

For the tackle box I used my 11x15 pan, then I cut it to 8" so it was 8x15. It is four layers tall, but three would have been ok. If you want to make a smaller one just cut the size down all the way around. I used my wilton tool caddie box as a model for the size. For the fish I used the 11x15 pan and cut out the shape. I used the left over pieces to put on top of the fish shape and then carved it to make the rounded shape for the body. The fishes eye was from a teddy bear. The sand is just brown sugar with fondant bobbers and hooks. Let me know if you need anything else, or if my directions aren't clear. It's hard to think straight when two little boys are running circles around you!

The days that I am at work, I stayed logged in and look at post between calls, and now with my new schedule the days that I have off I will probably be only on an hour or two the day that I am off.

melodyscakes Posted 24 Apr 2005 , 5:10pm

icon_biggrin.gif well, i appreciate what you do, but was thinking that answering all our questions, you probably dont have time to bake yourself icon_cry.gif

Your welcome, I enjoy helping people and talking to people with the same love as me. I really enjoy this site, it is very helpful not only with cakes, but also in helping me keep my spirits up when I have a bad day.

Hey melodyscakes, I'm glad that your cake turned out good! Did you post a picture? I'm sure everyone loved it! thumbs_up.gif

m0use Posted 24 Apr 2005 , 10:07pm

Yep she did, go into the photos button on her post and you will see it. Or go into the galleries and click on Last uploads on the top and her cake should be in the first or second page.

peacockplace Posted 24 Apr 2005 , 11:35pm

ok, I found it... It looks great. I bet it was the hit of the party!
