Are you making the whole cake shaped like that fish, or is he going to be a 3D decoration or a fondant cut out?

OK- I couldn't find anything with gumpaste, but I found these two sites that made the orange fish out of clay- I would think maybe same basic concept. Good luck!! Make sure to post pictures when you're done!

I actually just made the fish and put him a bowl on the top of the cake. It wasn't perfect but I was happy with it. I basically molded a him from a roll, stretched his tail out thin, flattened then split it. I gently "pinched" his fins out on the top (they actually broke off because didn't glue him to the bowl right away and he fell into it). I also pinched out his fins in the front and then split the fingers with an xacto. HTH, here's the link to the photo.

I made him too, and cannot even begin to tell you how deceptively hard he is! It is trial and error. I think I started over 12 times, at least. It is the mouth area you need to concentrate on the most. If you start with a tear shape and get the mouth cuts right, then the rest seems to fall into place. Good luck! The other ladies have some great hints as well.

Here's mine, it still was not what I had envisioned, but I ran out of time...
