Fat Trout

This is one I have been dying to make and finally got to it! Baked a 9x13 and cut it in half, torted and stacked 3 layers, then carved to shape. Covered in fondant, made markings with veining tool, used back of tip for the scales, and toothpick for the fins and tail. Used picture of real trout for color guide. Used green luster dust, for top, pale yellow for lower middle and super pearl for bottom. Used carnation dust for center band. Layered all colors for tail and top fins.

Lettuce was made of fondant and pressed with lettuce leaf, then brushed with diluted piping gel. Tomatos are fondant painted with a mix of dusts. All future questions answered in advance! :D

Fantabulous cake! So real looking- Wow, double wow. I'll have to remember the diluted piping gel trick for the wet look. I've also used karo syrup (for a slip'n'slide I once made)
