This cake was very experimental. It took me about 4 nights of staying up til 3am. I had never worked with using fondant to mold, or make little creatures, it was hard! There were a few set backs, such as spending hours on a shark, only to end up throwing it in the trash and starting all over. But all it all this take taught me how to NOT do certain things, and though it was time consuming, it was fun! I picked an ocean theme because my little guy was in love with a certain baby movie that showed nothing but sea creatures, we watched it about 4 times a day to keep him happy!
