      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"

      Dead albino sharks, but still amazing.

      I assume you have seen the documentary Sharkwater.

      Thanks for sharing!

      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.
