king salmon shaped retirement cake

This was a fun cake to do. It was a chocolate cake with a mousse filling, hand carved to look like a large king salmon that the gentleman caught on a trip to Alaska. It was covered with Italian buttercream and then wraped in rolled fondant. The fins are made of fondant as well. The cake was hand painted with edible colors and edible glitter to give the scales a shine. Around the cake is candied seaweed that was actualy good. The cake was presented with a large (new) fising lure atached to the top lip of the fish.
I was able to do this cake while I worked at Lake Powell and it was for a friends husband as well which made it even more special.
