Whats beneath the shore?

Ee!! An adorable turtle!!
The turtle is my favourite! The matching fishies ain't too bad either...but awww...lookat cute little TURTLE!*I apologize...the 3 year old in me has taken over the keyboard.Assembling this cake was so much fun...coming up with the design and sketching was even more exciting! The cute-ness of it all had me jumpy and enthusiastic!
I've always wanted to do an ocean+sand themed cake but never found the opportunity. Well...finally! It was Issacs birthday last weekend....and we couldn't come up with a specific theme to reflect his interests or personality. I was free to do as I wish! *yaY!!*
It was the perfect opportunity for adorable sea creatures!
Why the weird rectangular shape? you ask ...
well...
Why not?
*grin* ;)

Hi. I am sooo wrong. THIS one is the BEST & takes the cake! (pardon the pun). The so called weird block looks like you have taken a 'sample' out of the ocean - like those core samples that geologists take - only your core sample is of the ocean! i think its a brilliant idea. Absolutely love it! Thats one very lucky kid. If it were me i would remember this very special birthday cake for ever = )

I must say you did a great job for every single creation. Very creative indeed. How in the world did you deliver the cakes, unless you can find big boxes for all your cakes

long time fan of your work =0D said...

anonymous: hey, thanks, i usually come up with the ideas myself, its hard to get creative ideas from books, u really have to sit down and think about it, nice to hear from u.

anonymous(2): hey, i dont have a good recipe for good white chocolate frosting, but the penut butter frosting should be a little bit clumpy... just a little bit, however try beating the mixture a little longer before adding the condensed milk, that should help, add the milk in a little bit at a time.

m: aaawww thats so sweet, i'd make u a cake too if i knew who u were.

phoebe:hi, i actually buy my fondant from wilton, this site should be helpful if u want to make some on ur own: www.cakecentral.com

anonymous(3): hey thanks for ur comment, the cake inside was almond cherry... just something he likes, would love to hear more from u.

anonymous(Razababy Singapore): hey thanks, can... i will make a post about it, just haven't found the time yet.

wendy: i actually dont put them in boxes, but sometimes i have tall cake covers that fit the cakes, i often need to find custom cake boxes if its requested for, but usually cake stands or cake covers will do.

long time of your work =0d: aaww thanks!

WOW! I am just so impressed! It feels like a little Cartoon Network island. My wife made her first attempt at this cartoon cake decor stuff a while back, and I was roped in to experiment. Now my bro-in-law is saying how our's sucks so much compared to yours. I think he's right! HAHAHA. I am so ashamed...
