Summer is finally here and boy is it going to be a hot one! Since it's the perfect time to do a little fishing this week, our team made a life size speckled trout fish for a groomsman cake. Why not enjoy a little fish on the side of a cake? Sounds a little fishy to me...
One of our sugar artists, started off with a square piece of styrofoam. She started carving the styrofoam and added rice krispie treats to make an easier fish shape. Then, it is covered with fondant and airbrushed detail to make the fish look as if it had just hoped out of the water! But no fresh fish can go without a little ice; therefore, we made ice cube shapes out of isomalt which is a melted form of sugar that solidifies into any shape you mold it into.
The Trout sits on top of a life size wooden tackle box made out of our popular Black Bottom cake. Black Bottom is a Chocolate cake with cream cheese and chocolate chip filling topped
with cream cheese buttercream! YUM!
