Krewe Nautilus cake

This cake was for Krewe Nautilus one of Tampa bays most funnest Gasparilla Krewe. For those not familiar it is our version of New Orleans Mardi Gras. The request was for something fun and this was the desing I cam e up with, Bottom tier to replicate the men’s jacket they wear and the top tier to resemble the womens bodice. Seeing as they are Krewe Nautilus I also added the Nautilus and one of the crewe members all being attacked by a large killer squid which also adorns the side of their Gasparilla float. I wish my picture taking skills were better as my backdrop for this cake was a room size aquarium with large sharks swimming in the back ground but all my pictures came out terrible :(
Cake flavors were sangria for top tier and Kahlua for the bottom, yes they love their liquor,lol.

Thank you lovely ladies so much I still think you are all being so kind. It was suppose to have a total over the top coral scene all over the bottom but due to a morning disaster 90% of that did not get put on, such a bummer.

Fantastic job Sharon! Sometimes cakes have a mind of their own but is is wonderful that they turn out so well even if they did not go as planned.
