My youngest son Jake is turning 2 tomorrow! I love making my own cakes for both my boys’ birthdays, and I didn’t have to think long for an idea for Jake’s cake.
Meet fishy, Jake’s lovely since the very beginning. I thought it would be really cool if I could make a cake that at least resembled fishy. Since fishy is a unique looking fish, I knew that I wouldn’t find a cake mold for this project. So I started with two 9-inch round cakes … chocolate of course! I traced fishy’s different parts and cut pieces from the two cakes. Here is what it looked like assembled before I frosted it.
And, I think that it looks pretty close to the original fishy. At least close enough for Jake to recognize him!
