Hammerhead Shark Cake

Happy 3rd Birthday Cupcake #2! October 2004

I don't remember exactly how I made this cake. I remember my hubby saved the day by putting the cake pieces together to make it look like a hammerhead shark before I iced it. I had a picture in my head about what I wanted the cake to look like, but I was unable to think about how to make it and my hubby was able to turn the cake into this fierce hammerhead shark. Around the shark I iced the foiled lined cardboard with blue icing to look like water and then I put red and blue gummy sharks and fish in the icing. The "Go Fishing" sign on the left side of the photo was to let guests know that they could pick up a fishing rod (pretzel stick), dip it into peanut butter (bait) and catch a fish (goldfish) at the end of their pretzel stick and eat! In the middle of the table is a fish bowl with the beta fish we had then and I sign sticking out that says "No fishing." Cupcake #2 loved marine life and still does so this hammerhead shark cake was a big hit!


Thank you so much for sharing.My 4 year old son is crazy about sharks, especially hammerhead sharks. He asked for a shark cake for his birthday in late April and I have been searching for ideas to give to my best friend, she has been baking & creating cakes for a long time.I do wish there was a little more description on how ya'll made it, but I am just overjoyed to have finally found a picture to go off of to design our son's cake. My friend is super talented and I am pretty sure that this will be all she needs.....THANKS, AGAIN- CHRISTINE FROM SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA.

If you happen to remember where the shark themed table cloth that you had on the cake table is please post/e-mail me to let me know....Thanks again. Hope you and your family have a blessed spring!
