I'm making a groom's cake for my brother's upcoming wedding. I was hoping to make a shark cake but can't find any good ideas for a good one. I googled shark cakes and found some cute ones but seeing as I'm not an expert in any means I would like something somewhat easy. I'd also like something that's 3D because I'd like to put a little top hat on it but don't really know how to accomplish that. If you have any suggests or ideas for me I'd greatly appreciated anything you've got! Thanks!!

I just recently made one using this link as a starting point, then I used gumpaste for the teeth and red inside mouth - good luck!

not sure how much cake you need but i actually cooked the shark part in a double loaf pan with a double pound cake recipe (extra cooked for the family...loved it) and i also put it on a 9x13 to make more cake. i added the picture to my photos, not one i'm especially proud of as it was ordered 1 day before the party and i work full time, too so it was definitely a rush job and i would have loved to play more with the details. can't wait to see what you come up with, there are some really awesome shark cakes on here, too.

SUGGESTION: Use candy corn for Shark's teeth!

A groom's cake needs to be special, but for fun kids party idea, you can always make shark's fin popping out of a cupcake. They sell party picks with funny distressed surfers and shark's fins, but you can make a shark's fin yourself from paper, or chocolate or a cookie, too.

I'd love to see your final product! Please post your shark cake.
