Has anyone done a bass cake or one with the fish coming out of the cake?
If so can you give me any tips or instructions about how you carved it,layed the fondant, colred the fondant, applied luster dust,etc.?
Thanks

I did a bass cake, the pictures are hard to see but I took several bass pictures and printed them while I was working. I molded out of RKT, and actually put a dowel in it so I could stick it in the cake easy. I wanted him to be jumping. After it dried out a few days and got hard, I covered in a very light coat of butter cream, then covered in fondant. I made the fins and the eyes separetly and attached them with royal icing. I colored the whole thing using gel colors. I recommend using brown and green mixed together, otherwise you will end up with a bit too green of a fish. I added luster dust to the underbelly in yellow and made sure I rubbed it in very well so that I just had sheen, not glittery sparkle. There are a few pictures of my fish. I stuck the rod in a shoe box so I had a good decorating platform. Good Luck!
