After being together for five years, this is the first cake I’ve ever made for my boyfriend – it was his 30th birthday, so I think it was for a pretty good reason.
I had a blast making this cake, and it took maybe 4 hours. The scale texture was created using a bathscrub (don’t worry, not a used one!) that I had cut a piece out of and wrapped around my fondant smoother.
The airbrushing left a sour tang in my sinuses even though I had my mask on… and a rainbow of colour when I blew my nose!
We had dinner at the Keg, and the staff was just freaked out by the cake. Many comments about people wondering when did they start serving raw fish??? There was a steady stream of kitchen staff walking by the table to sneek a peek at the cake while we ate our dinner. 🙂
