Here in Oklahoma, we get a lot of requests for hunting and fishing themed cakes and this is one of our very favorites. This bash fish jumping cake is always a crowd pleaser and the talk of the party!
To create this cake, we start with 2 layers of cake and a delicious filling. We ice the cake smooth in buttercream or fondant, whichever the client prefers. We then airbrush the cake to give it an ombre water effect. We add edible cat tails, blades of grass and chocolate rock accents around the sides of the cake.
For the topper, we start with rice cereal treats and mold them into the shape of the fish. We add a layer of fondant and texture it before it has time to dry. Once it sets, we add the 3D fins and gills, which are also made of fondant. We then airbrush the fish to give it more realistic coloring and brush it with a luster dust. We add the eyes and he’s done and ready to place on the cake!
We like to keep as much of our cakes edible as we can, so using buttercream, fondant, chocolate rocks, rice cereal treats and edible coloring. We think he’s the perfect addition to your favorite fisherman’s celebration!
