Under the Sea Cake is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from hardest part is most time consuming, the stars. I used the candy orange slices rolled out and shaped for the fins. I made several different colored fish for different people. The kids love this. It is a great summer time cake and so much fun. I like to place the fish on a round cake decorated like the ocean floor. Most important part to remember is to put a wooden rod thru the fish into the ocean floor to keep it steady.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my husband's birthday. He loves to fish and this was the perfect cake. The kids were in awe and could not wait to cut the cake. The patterns were very easy to use. I used a light weight foam paper for the fins, tail and mouth and blue icing sprinkled with blue glitter sugar at the bottom for the water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made a base of marshmallow cereal treats and rolled the edges in graham crackers to look like sand. I used the 2010 tip for the stars which made it go super fast. The only problem I had was that one of the gumballs did not want to stay put so I have a googly eyed fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found this cake to be easy to do. I used the orange chocolates for the fins and used frosting for the eye. I put chocolate chip in the middle of the white frosting for an eyeball. I also added fish gummies to the blue water. Everyone was impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this as a wedding cake for a couple who met on the online dating site Plenty of Fish. Starting with an oval base cake covered in royal blue boiled icing for shiny water and waves topped with blue glitter sugar, the cake sides covered in a mixture of graham cracker and bread crumbs to look like the ocean floor with candy melt seashells scattered around, I placed two of these fish cakes facing each other with mouths touching in a kiss. The lightest spice gum drops were flattened with a rolling pin, cut into graduating circles to look like bubbles ending with a heart shaped bubble on top were threaded onto thin wire and inserted into the base cake between the two 'lovers'. One cake, of course, had black curly eyelashes. A wooden dowel placed vertically through each fish and anchored in the base cake was an essential part of the structure! This, I think, would work for a couple with a funky sense of humor wanting a fun cake and casual wedding, but not necessarily appropriate for a traditional wedding and reception. In this case, however, it was a HUGE success with everyone, especially the bride and groom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got tons of compliments from my friends and family, turned out great! I used crushed graham crackers and candy sea shells to look like sand on the plate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was somewhat difficult because of the stars you have to do...your arm HAS to stay up and that I believe is the hard part.
