    Just thought I'd let you know that your cake has been blogged on cakewrecks -

    The construction and detail is amazing! Was it used at an actual wedding?

    I'll bite (pun intended)-- what are the sharks made out of?

    yota armai: It wasn't used at an actual wedding. It was made for ACRES in protest of sharks being killed for their fins to make soup at Chinese weddings. More can be seen on youtube. Just search "ACRES wedding cake"

    Juie Lyn: The sharks are all sugar. Fondant to be exact :)

    I think this wins my prize for most disturbing cake ever. Fortunately that seems to have been it's purpose, but gah...

    Dead albino sharks, but still amazing.

    A very wonderful statement. I am lucky enough to have dived with great whites. It is a shame such a beautiful creature may see extinction in our lifetime.
