Marlin Cake


Whoa, this summer is flying by. It took a hurricane for me to sit long enough to post a new cake entry. I made this cake for one of my favorite clients, I think out of his six birthday's I have made five of his cakes! (See Oscar's fifth cake here)

Oscar has been spending this summer near the water, his Dad drew a Marlin fish to put on his birthday invite and his mom (who is a very cool designer) orchestrated the cake. I came up with a sketch based on her direction and away we went. It's a completely designed nautical themed cake, with a sugar Marlin popping out of the top, half vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and the other half was a decadent chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting (I used the recipe from our kids book: Confetti Cakes for Kids).

Enjoy the photos!


Marlin fish made out of white gum paste on a wooden skewer and painted with luster dusts and gels.

Buoys painted with candy colors and petal dusts


Oscar's name spelled out to look like rope. I used gum paste and a clay gun.

This houndstooth skirt is absolutely adorable Coach Outlet. The houndstooth pattern is so high fashion and funky. Even thougth this skirt is black Coach Coach Bags and white, the detail is so fashionable. It is a high waisted skirt, which makes it even better. The length of the skirt is perfect for a date or a day of shopping. You can purchase this skirt. Jean shorts are so cute Coach Op Art Bags and great for the summer time. They are good for wearing to the beach or to go shopping. These shorts are especially adorable because they Coach Satchel Bags have big buttons and a lot of pockets.

Sometimes simple is better, and in this case, it is.

For the majority of them, D&G glasses was their first paying modeling job.Franklin Marshall T-shirts great to see these guys continue to work the fashion shows after so many years of hard work and dedication!

One of the best qualities of Mirosoft Office 2010 in particular is its organization. Microsoft word is more sleek, user-friendy, and intuitive. The pitfall of many of microsoft's programs is not in the options the program offers, but in the delivery of the program itself. With download Office 2010, Microsoft has managed to maintain and expand their options, while organizing and designing menu toolbars in a way that better fits the modern Office user.
