The Sea Bass Cake was massive. It made me cry before I started to make it! (they all usually make me cry at some point but not before I’ve started). I have added lots of pictures of this cake, I really enjoyed making it once I got carving. I embossed each scale onto the icing, it took quite a while (and a dead arm – suffering for art). The cake was dusted with silver and black for shading. I made the eye shiny using confectioners glaze. It turned out much better than I expected. I wanted a balance between realistic and cartoon style fish, to produce an appetizing cake.
