Pond Cake

by Ashley
(British Columbia, Canada)

I made this Pond Cake for my brother-in-law's 40th birthday.This cake took me one full day to complete.

I made the ducks and bulrushes out of sugar paste. The pond is blue piping gel swirled with white butter cream. The sand is crushed graham crackers, and chocolate rocks to spell out the "Happy 40th."

It was two 9x13 scratch chocolate cakes with a bowl chocolate cake at the back. It was filled with nutella buttercream.

From the editor:

Great job Ashley. Thanks so much for sharing your cake with us.

Regards,
Michelle (editor)

I used thin wooden dowels as the stalk of the bulrush, I soaked them before I put the sugar paste on and then dried them laying flat...tried drying them standing up but the sugar paste kept sliding down. Hope this helps you and good luck with your cake!! :)

Bullrush

Hi Ashley,

What did you use to hold the bulrush up? Did you dry them standing up? I have a fishing cake coming up and yours look great.
