Request from a client for a "Soul Surfer" Birthday Cake in two weeks! This is the movie where the young surfer lost her arm to a shark. How would I implement that in a CAKE!?!? HELP ME!

Any ideas would be appreciated. I've searched this site and googled it. Can't find anything yet - only surfers.

How aout a cake that is half the beach and half the sea, so half water, half sand, and decorate it nicely with textiles, beach objects etc, and make a gumpaste/fondant/modelling choc figure of the girl, standing with her surf board with a huge bite out of it, like these pics of the actual girl,

Hope this helps, good luck! icon_smile.gif

What about making the actual cake the board with the bite taken out of it and then a figure of the girl standing on it. Obviously the figure wouldn't be in proper proportion to the board but, it would sort of convey the message of the story with her standing up and overcoming her tragedy.
