This cake was made for a young boy, as requested through the charity "Icing Smiles". He was celebrating a birthday after having fought a hard battle with cancer. His request was for a chocolate cake, with cherry filling. He really wanted a theme that had anything do with the ocean.
Everything is edible. Fondant fish and coral, butter cream icing and royal icing were used for the seal life and coral. Ocean waves are boiled sugar candy.
Happy Birthday Axel!
