I was asked to do a retirement cake for a friend that was retiring as a Master Chief from SEAL team six. They wanted a trident on the cake which is a very important symbol to the teams, and I thought about turning down the job afraid that I couldn't do it justice. But in the end, I figured "it's just cake" and they would appreciate whatever I could do. Using an actual trident pin (at top) as a model, I worked on it in stages over days. It was quite time consuming but I figure with the service and sacrifice these men make for our country, it was well worth it.
