A little friend of mine is turning five, and loves the story of Moby Dick.

Of course, the cake has to be about his favourite!

There would have to be a ship and the whale on the cake, but the proportions could be a problem.

Can anybody help?

Oh well... I guess this is not a very popular story.

This is what I came up with. The little boy was speechles.

Fantastic, sorry, didn't see the post before, but you solved it on your own, way to go

Thanks Ursula. Good to see you here.

I should have looked in the galleries for a whale cake. I kept looking for "Moby Dick" and "Sperm whale" and "Ishmael".

Strangely enough, I posted my cake this morning, and it was on the home page, in "posted today" and just above it, in the "popular cakes posted today" was a very very similar whale cake, which was posted yesterday!

I was hoping to make the ship too, but the proportions would have looked really weird, so I just decided to leave it simple.

Thanks for taking the time to comment!

Hi there,

I recently posted a whale cake I made for a friend who's a fisherman. You can take a look at it (in my pictures) and maybe change the fisherman for a little boat?

Hope this helps.
Good luck,
