A Fisherman's Dream
This cake was created for my son who is an avid and enthusiastic fisherman. The sugar work was created from gumpaste then dusted. The mermaid is made mostly from modeling chocolate that I had tinted a flesh color before shaping her. Her hair and scales are fondant. The cake itself is the coral reef in which she is sitting on. It is a reverse graduation that I made from an 8" and two 6" round cakes. Once all the cakes were stacked I carved it down and covered it in buttercream. Then the whole cake was refrigerated until it was solid and covered in a grey fondant. I think that she turned out beautifully considering her tail broke on me when I placed her onto the cake and I had to fix it while she was in place.
