Homemade Fishing Cake

Homemade Fishing Cake

I enjoy creating fun birthday cakes for my children, but sometimes coming up with an idea that I can actually produce is tricky (since I don't use fondant). I happened to find a fish-shaped aluminum pan at a garage sale, and it sparked an idea for a fishing themed cake for my son who enjoys casting a line (I think the pan may have actually been intended for decorative purposes).

First, I baked some cake in a soccer ball cake pan (half sphere) and carved it into a large rock shape. Then I made smaller rocks out of carved cupcakes. The cake was difficult to get out of the fish pan, even though I had greased it well. After arranged all of the cake pieces up on the tray, I frosted them.

I used brown M&Ms for the eyes. The fins were made out of cookies cut into fin shapes, then frosted. I made a bobber out of a red sucker (stick mostly cut off), half covered with a yellow Laffy Taffy, attached to red rope licorice for the line, and wrapped around a pretzel stick for the pole. I used paper clips bent for the hooks. I used graham cracker crumbs for the sand and added a few chocolate candy rocks as well.

My son was thrilled with the fishing cake and so were all of his cousins! It's going to be hard to top that one...and so the search for the next cake idea begins.

Coolest Fishing in a Boat Cake 22

Homemade Fishing in a Boat Cake

Homemade Fishing in a Boat Cake

This man fishing in a boat birthday cake was really fun to make. I used a 10" cake tin and this too was doubled up to be able to fill with homemade butter cream and strawberry jam. It was left in the fridge and straightened all the sides to look perfect (hopefully).

The cake itself was quite difficult, all the fish, boat, fishing man, roots, water and everything else you can see was handmade by me. I had so much fun and I am over the moon as to how it has come out.

I hope you like the cake. I am pretty proud of the outcome

Coolest Rainbow Trout Cake 33

Rainbow Trout Cake

Rainbow Trout Cake

I made this Rainbow Trout cake for my flyfishing obsessed husband. Best catch he'd had all season! I apologize in advance for the photo, my cat got hold of the fish tail before the camera did!

It's done with chocolate cake. Freeze the cake before icing to prevent crumbling. Started with the white icing for the stomach of the fish, then the grey for the remainder. Bit of pink icing for the tail and fins. Green pebble (smartie) for the eye with a bit of white icing. Decorated with silver cachous.

Hi there,

I just printed the shape from a google images clip art photo and pinned it to the cake, cut around it and waalaa, fish.

Homemade Fishing Birthday Cake Idea

Homemade Fishing Birthday Cake Idea

This Fishing Birthday Cake Idea is a French vanilla cake with white buttercream icing. The topper (the man and fish) was purchased at a local cake bakery. The water was made by mixing Wilton’s food coloring with piping gel.

For the green the buttercream icing colored green with Wilton’s food coloring and tip #233 was used to pipe out the icing for the grass look. For the sand brown sugar was used. A star and leaf tip was used for the borders.

Awesome

Hello!

Your cake looks like it was made by a professional. I would like to make one for my father, but I can't find the fisherman. Could you tell me the name of the place you bought it at?

This Homemade Gone Fishing Cake Idea was created as a suprise for my Brother Allen. It was a Madeira sponge cake with strawberry jam filling covered with strawberry butterceam then covered in sugarpaste.

The figures were made with coloured sugar paste.
The only non edible part is the fishing rod. It only took a couple of hours to make the figures and another couple of hours to put it all together.

Hope you like it

I made this fishing cake for Henry and added his friend's name because his birthday was the next week. They enjoy fishing together and I thought they would like to have a cake to reflect that.

The trees are made from royal icing. The fish are the candles.
