I did these gawjiss little things for a friend’s little boy, who was turning one. At the time he loved all things marine, so she asked for “under the sea” themed cupcakes to fit the party theme.
The animals were made with coloured fondant (aka pettinice), and they took me a good week or so to finish. The cakes were vanilla, and the icing was a plain butter icing coloured with blue and white. I then piped it onto the cakes in a two-tone pattern to look like water!
I was rather pleased with the result.
