You can cover the fish-shaped cake in fondant and dust/paint with a grey shimmer. Also, use the end of a tip and make half moon indentations into the fondant to resemble scales. I saw this once in a Colette Peters book (sorry, don't remember the title, but it has a golden cake on the cover - maybe it was a wedding cake).

I have a fish cake (a bass to be specific) posted on my pics. It was done using a plastic oven safe pan and all buttercream. I melted chocolate and poured into fins and tail then placed on cake.

does it have to look "real"? when i saw your post on the home page, the first thing i thought of was like a goldfish... round cake with crescents cut from top and bottom and use the parts to make tail and lips... orange fondant, use a tip to make the scales like the pp's said... with red luster dust at the edges of the scales...

now i am rambling
