Reef Shark

My son loves sharks. For his big milestone 10th birthday, we held an awesome shark-themed party and I just had to make a fin-tastic cake to go with it! I thought-up a concept I thought would be different from ideas I have already seen and challenge me a bit. My son selected the Grey Reef Shark and I wanted it to be elevated, swimming through a reef. The shark is the actual cake, a golden butter sponge cake, filled and crumbcoated in vanilla buttercream. The reef was constructed from tons of edibles, including RKTs, chocolate, and fondant. Every critter and plant was lovingly molded and airbrushed. I also made tons of edible sand for the sea floor. Happy Birthday, Liam!
