First I had to color the fondant gray so that it looked like a dolphins skin...
Then I frosted the cake. These are my favorite kinds of cakes to do because they don't have to be perfect. In fact, the more willy nilly the better...here I made waves.
Then I added the white caps or sea foam.
Then I started creating the underwater scenes.
And last, the dolphin on top.
Overall, I'm happy with it. It was the first time that I covered a shape with fondant-I've covered cakes before, but not a crazy shape like a dolphin. So...I'm happy with how ended up. The kids were amazed and Rye Bread really liked it. I heard her tell her little friends at least twice that her aunt was a cook....which I guess is why she's got cool cakes. :)
This was the actual day of her birthday-we had a store bought cake and she smashed her head into it...actually, we all took turns smashing her face into it, and it was the hardest I've laughed in a loooooong time. The colors actually kind of look pretty with here eyes!
Me and my Rye Bread. I wonder what next years cake will be!
