Under the Sea Baby Shower Cake

The cake that nearly died in Sydney’s humidity! 6" double barrel base tier consisting of Vanilla cake with white choc ganache and caramel mud with caramel ganache. Top tier of rich chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream.
All the fish etc were supposed to be hand painted but the humidity was so high that pearl lustre had to suffice.
This cake fought me till the end, and I had wanted to do this theme for so long. I wanted it to be perfect for my gorgeous friend, never mind :(

Awwww…thanks Ladies! I should add the photo of the cake on the buffet table…the clam which was hard when I left home flopped down and covered the baby so had to be removed and because the top tier was full of choc buttercream, it nearly oozed off the cake all together…I was so upset!! The double barrel was solid and straight as a arrow….i LOVE Ganache!! ;)

Raewyn, I love your cake … After reading your comments, I think I feel better about my cakes because I, too, live in a humid place and the gumpaste does not dry… Even if it is dry, when it is too humid, it softens and the end result is horrible…oh well!! But your is so pretty!!
