After 5 years of being together, this was the first time I made my boyfriend a cake! For his 30th birthday - a good reason. Brought it to a restaurant for the party, and some of the waitstaff were wondering when on earth did they start serving raw fish on the menu! Scales were made using a new (never ever used ;) ) bath scrubbie that I had cut a piece off of and wrapped around my fondant smoother. I tried Michele's Foster's Fondant recipe - tasted great and was easy to work with.
