Proposal On Fishing Pond


My cousin asked me to make her future husband a grooms cake that went with their marriage proposal. He proposed to her on his grand-dad's fishing pond. Cake is chocolate - double sheet cake. I covered the water side in modeling chocolate and piped on green colored buttercream for the grass. Tackle box is also cake covered in modeling chocolate. I hand scuplted the fish, cat-tails and rocks from modeling chocolate and air brushed on the color. Tackle box lid, tray, lures, weights, hooks and bobber are all made from gumpaste. I also made the engagement ring and box from gumpaste and added an edible sugar diamond. I made the tree from rice krispy treats and covered it in modeling chocolate also. They loved it!! :)
