Fish in the Ocean Cake

Fish in the Ocean Cake

I threw a fish-themed party for my son's third birthday and I wanted to make his cake myself this time. I used a round pan for the body and a heart-shaped pan for the tail. The pointy tip of the heart-shaped cake was cut off with a curve to follow the round cake (the tip was going to be a fin, but fell victim to Daddy). I "glued" the two pieces together with buttercream frosting then frosted the whole cake with white buttercream.

Daddy took over the decorating then, spraying alternating green and purple stripes onto the fish with Wilton Color Mist. He then piped lines on the stripes, tail, outline and smile with purple buttercream. I cut a marshmallow in half and used blue food coloring to "paint" a pupil on the cut side for the fish's eye.

At the party, the fish cake was surrounded by cupcakes iced with a 1M swirl and sprayed with blue Wilton Color Mist - a fish swimming in the ocean!

I made this cake using an ordinary 6oz spounge recipe.

I divided the mixture 2/3 into a small oval shaped casserole dish, and 1/3 into a sandwich tin.

When the cakes were done, i put buttercream and jam in the middle of the oval cake, and cut out a tale shape from the round cake, and two smaller fin shaped pieces, which I stuck to the main cake with Jam.

I then made a large quantity of buttercream (meant to be blue, but came out grey) and covered the cake in a thick layer.

The scales were done with white chocolate and milk chocolate button overlapping slightly, and all other details were done with writing icing.
The "FISH" is written with alphabet sweets.

Homemade Fish Cake

A friend of mine wanted a "fish" cake for her son's birthday. After looking at several different fish cake photos, we decided to combine several different ideas. The "plaque" is made from a torted sheet cake. I smoothed the buttercream icing using paper towels and a fondant smoother until it resembled a wood plaque.

I sculpted the fish shape out of a 1/2 layer cake and covered the fish body and head with white fondant which I then painted with food coloring. The fins and tail are pieces of cake left over after cutting out the fish body. I iced them using my basket weave tip. The eye is a piece of fondant.

For a cake this has such great detail. Looks just like a real mounted fish. Looks like a great deal of effort went into this cake. Great Job.

This Fish cake was really quite easy to make. To make the fish I cut plastic craft canvas into a triangle and then tied 2 corners together to make a modified cone shape.

I had planned to make the fish out of rice krispies but that didn't work so I used some rice krispies under the canvas to help hold the shape of the fish. I iced the canvas with buttercream to look like a bass fish. I did use a dowel rod and bought some fishing line to make a fishing pole.

Two sheet cakes stacked, carve into whale like body for a fish cake. Fondant a layer over whole fish. Cut scales with round cookie cutter, layer on overlapping.

Tail is cut from an additional square cake, make shape however you'd like. Frost with regular frosting or fondant like I did.

Have fun, my nephew almost cried when we had to eat it. He saved the head for himself.

I made this Koi Cake Design for my Grandma's birthday. She has always had a fish pond since I can remember, and her Koi in it have to weigh close to 20 pounds each! So, I knew she would love this cake.

It is a marbled chocolate-vanilla cake with a Kaluah-Coffe filling, vanilla buttercream and marshmallow fondant. It was delish!!
