Aquarium With Firemouth Cichlids

This cake was for my husband's 31st Bday!!! He loves keeping beautiful aquariums, and this cake is a virtual replica! I would have taken better photographs but it wasn't quite finished when our 2 year old son pulled a chair up next to it and took a huge bite out of it! So we just ate it after that and I didn't quite get to complete it. First I hot glued pieces of plexiglass to creat the rectangular "aquarium". Then I mixed cookie crumbs with brown sugar to creat the sand. I added milk chocolate river rock candy. The plants and stick are plastic (from the pet section in walmart:). The fish have a hardened fondant backing and then I used buttercream icing to create their bodies by icing onto the fondant. Then I made the aquarium stand and top, assembled the cake, and then created a little pocket on the underside of the top part of the aquarium where I placed a two in wide circular LED light shining down into the aquarium. My husband LOVED it!!!! Hope you like it too! Thanks:)
