This custom-order was a special request cake, as an Anniversary gift. It is a tribute art piece inspired by Terry Pratchett’s amazing fiction “Discworld”.

Waterfall around edge of disc is gelatin, rainbows are solid gumpaste. The underside and fins, head, tail are a food-safe board covered in gumpaste, sculpted and hand-painted This creation was filled with Chocolate Mint Grasshopper cake filled with Chocolate Cookie Crumble with Dark Chocolate Mint Buttercream, and was covered with more Dark Chocolate Buttercream.
