An Edible Aquarium

aquarium birthday cake with life preserverCreated for someone whose hobby is setting up aquariums, this fish tank has it all -- shiny gumpaste fish, buttercream plants and bubbles, chocolate shells and gravel made of candy. And the best part is there's no algae to scrape off the sides! This cake was over 7" tall with three layers of buttery pound cake and vanilla buttercream filling. I used fondant to create the top and bottom of the tank.

  1. Thank you so much Marj for transforming Jan Lee's hobby to an edible aquarium cake. He was so excited; he even made sure a good piece was to be left alone, so that he can just look at it. It was a surprise birtday bash to remember...Two thumbs up!!!
