The lady that asked me to make this cake called me from Michigan, and i live in Hampton, VA and the party was in Portsmouth, VA. so it was a long distance order. thank goodness for the internet and social networking sites. it was a surprise to him. And the first 2 things he said was look its the ugly duck and that me on the back. WOW! that just makes everything worth the time and effort that goes into making a cake like this. it is all cake but the bottom of the boat is rice krispy treats since i had to travel over 20 miles to deliver it. the man is edible and the entire boat and under is as well!
