I had a call yesterday about doing a cake for an 84 year old man's birthday. She said he is really into submarines as he works at the museum submarine the uss silversides. I think she really would like the cake to be a sculped cake, though I have never done one and want to get some help here before I commit one way or the other. The problem is the uss silversides doesnt really look like what I thought a submarine was supposed to look like! It looks more like a ship from what I can tell and I cant find a very good picture. Anyone know anything about submarines? Also any help on sculpting a cake like this would be helpful. I am attaching a photo of the uss silversides. I wish I could find a picture of what it is supposed to look like in the back.
Love that 3rd pic GMcakes! Goood finds!
I knew they weren't quite the right shape, but I hope the pics give you a good starting point!
Thank you everyone for your time and research. I called her and told her I would give a 3d submarine a shot. It is a little out of my comfort zone, but I need to force myself to try something new.
