This was a birthday cake for two special friends, I made a 3D pond with a waterfall on rocks and koi fish, frogs , a turtle, lilly pads etc. I sculpted everything and made the water with moscato wine jelly . The base cake was red velvet with cream cheese icing and the rocks were orange cake with chocolate ganache and chocolate coating . The frogs , Lilly pads and turtle are made of chocolate and the koi fish are sculpted out of chocolate marshmallow fondant . The small pebbles in the pond are candy coated chocolate and the only thing I bought at the bulk barn . A mouthful of different tastes and sensations . The inspiration came from the Oriental symbolism for Koi fish which is good luck , abundance , courage and love.
