Commission: Shark Cake by cakecrumbs Commission: Shark Cake by cakecrumbs
This was a cake I was commissioned to do for a 24th birthday. Fortunately for the birthday girl, we had a few days of only high 20s so I was able to get to done without the fondant melting.

The cake is orange cake, layered and covered with orange buttercream, then covered in marshmallow fondant. The decorations are made from fondant. Shark is made from fondant, red velvet cake crumbs and chocolate.

Orange cake? Is it just a normal vanilla/white cake colored orange or actual orange cake?

cakecrumbs Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
It's actually orange flavour (it has orange juice, zest and essence in it).

Wow, I just love the detail of the blood on the letters. Let me guess, red colouring? ^^

I thought it had a similar effect to water paint! I guess it's kind of water paint of the food world, eh?

Wow, that is incredible. Great job. I love shards. He's very accurate. Love the water swirls and the blood. I don't like cakes, but to get one like this for my birthday would rock! I'd feel bad to eat it. Haha.
