under sea adventures abound with this adorable Fish Birthday Cake

I made my fish for this fish birthday cake out of 'make and mold' chocolate using Wilton's fish cake pan for the mold. I painted the pan with the colors I wanted the fish to be, then I filled it in with yellow. After it had set up, I took it out of the pan, and using more chocolate, I attached dowels to the back.
I also used 'make and mold' chocolate to make my seashells.
For my seaweed, I added gumtex to my fondant and cut it out in shapes I liked, then I laid them over flower formers to dry.
I made a twelve inch filled and layered cake and a ten inch filled and layered cake which I crumb coated and covered in fondant I colored, but I didn't mix the color all the way through, so that I had a swirly affect.

Hi Leah,

This fish cake is adorable. Very clever use of the cake pan as a chocolate mold for the fish.

Thanks for entering our contest. Good luck!
