Bubble Guppies Birthday Cake

Bubble Guppy Cake
I met Jessika over a year ago because she did a search online and found our blog.  We became friends on Facebook, got to know each other, and a month ago she took one of the Wilton cake classes at Hobby Lobby.  She asked if I would make her daughter's cake for her birthday and requested a Bubble Guppies cake.  She gave us some pictures of some ideas, but also gave us liberty to do whatever.

Coral, Sea Shells, and Seaweed on Cake

We did some research and printed off some pictures from online and planned our cake. The bottom layer is white cake, the top cake is chocolate with butter cream frosting. The border is self designed to look like waves.   Everything we added onto the cake is made with fondant. Some things were made with Wilton molds (pink and yellow coral and shells), but most things were made by hand. We put Finley's favorite characters on the top of the cake with her name. The sand at the bottom is brown sugar - one of the cakes we looked at online had that, and we felt it really added a lot to the cake!!

One of the highlights of making a cake is seeing the reaction of and hearing comments from people.  Jessika sent me a text that said it was just what they wanted and their daughter loved it.  That is probably the most rewarding part of making a cake!!
