I made this homemade fish cake for my husband who loves to go fishing. I used 5 different sized layers only 1 layer each started with a 6" round and went all the way up to a 10" round. I put each cake on cake boards and separated with dowel rods and put one long dowel rod through the entire top of cake to bottom of cake to keep it in place.
I iced the cake in buttercream and wrapped in marshmallow fondant for the sides in 2 separate pieces. I folded the tops over to make an edge. I used wire and bent to make it like handle shape and then covered it in fondant and stuck one on each side. I made the fish out of rice krispie treats and covered in fondant. I put a dowel rod through the fish head and then put on cake to hold it in place.
I made a fondant fish tail and put it on the back part. I used blue buttercream and covered the top of the homemade fish cake. I also made the lure and worms out of fondant. Hope I mentioned everything, anyways it was really fun to make and my husband loved it.
I made this Fish Birthday Cake for my Dad. It is a French vanilla cake and iced with homemade buttercream icing.
I baked the cake in a typical dark coat pan. I let it cool for about 2 hours (on the counter). After cooling, I cut the shape of the fish out (while in the pan).
After transferring the cake, I iced one layer. I let the cake sit for about 10 minutes and then went back to tip the cake with a Wilton's Star Tip (#18). The bubbles and border are tinted blue with regular blue food coloring. The lips are tinted with yellow. The fish eye is a simple brown M&M.
This cake was really easy and fun to do. My Dad enjoyed it as well.
I baked a devil's food 9 x 13 sheet then cut off the four corners in such as way as to be able to use the pieces for the tail and fins for this Homemade Fish Birthday Cake.
It's iced with peanut butter icing. The details are simply tubed on in cold "hot" fudge sauce. It was easy and SO yummy! I bake all the birthday cakes for my nephew, his wife and their 11 kids!! What fun to see their expectant faces as I arrive at the parties! Joel is an avid fisherman, hence the fish theme!

This Homemade Fish Birthday Cake is great when you're off to a party that's for boys and girls because everyone loves Nemo! The colours are super easy to change around and it's up to your own imagination.
The cake itself takes two packet cake mixes and I used a chocolate and vanilla mix and then marbled them just to give a bit extra to the effect.
