Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a huge hit for my son's first birthday! I displayed it on some "water" with some little gummy fish scattered around it too. I agree it did take a bit of practice for the teeth, but I just used cornstarch to adjust them during the application if needed. I do think that this cake feeds more than 24 people.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my son's 5th Birthday! He loved it. The cake was pretty easy to make. The only thing I found a little troublesome at first were the teeth. It takes some getting used to the angle. Overall, it was a fun cake to make and I would make it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for my son's 3rd birthday party. It came out amazing! Being that it was my first 3d cake, everyone was very impressed on how great it looked! I would have to agree with the teeth needing a bit of practice :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute! I used gray fondant all over instead of the buttercream stars. It was a big hit at my son's birthday party. Don't forget to make the shark fins a few days before so they have time to stiffen and dry.
