I baked 3- 9x12 cakes and stacked them on a wrapped board with buttercream icing between each layer. The cake stand was a wine rack that I turned upside down.
I iced the Aquarium Birthday Cake in buttercream icing and cut out black fondant strips to make the frame for the aquarium. I air brushed the whole cake blue and I used candy melts to make the coral,fish and the no fishing sign. I made seaweed out of green buttercream and a leaf tip.
I found the big fish to go on top at a local thrift store and added some candy melt fish in his mouth. The starfish and #10 were also made from candy melts. I purchased fold out fish and hung them from the aquarium stand.
This fishbowl cake was made with 2 8inch cakes, layered, trimmed at the bottom and laid on it's side.
For the lip of the bowl, I used a fruit by the foot and covered it all in blue and white icing. Pepperidge farm coloured goldfish and silver cake balls, fruit by the foot (seaweed) and Nerds for the rocks.
