Rated 5 out of 5 by Katy Did 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 4 out of 5 by Marla Jeanne 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 mkdj 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.
