Stingray and Shark Birthday Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 6:38 PM
Lisa wanted an underwater themed birthday cake for her son's 4th birthday at the aquarium. Well, actually, she wanted a shark and stingray cake :) She said that Ayden loved all kinds of sharks and stingrays and that I should focus on those. I had never made a stingray out of fondant but was up for the job. In order to get the color variation I wanted, I covered the whole cake in blue fondant then hand-painted dark blue and green onto the fondant. I added in some fondant crabs, starfish, sea anemones, coral, and most importantly the stingray and two types of sharks. I wanted Ayden on the cake somewhere too so I made him out of fondant and had him scuba diving on the top. The top tier was Rainbow Bright cake and the bottom tier was After Dinner Mint cake. I loved making all of the little details on this cake. It was one of those themes where I couldn't really go wrong (well, technically that crab is floating in mid air but other than that, I couldn't go wrong :)
