Something's Fishy!

My sister is throwing her boyfriend a surprise 30th birthday party today and asked me to make a cake. But not just any cake - a fish-shaped cake since her boyfriend loves to fish. I requested that she find me a cake pan in the shape of a fish, but instead she produced a photo of a cake from a magazine and asked me to recreate it. It was actually quite simple and I love the way it turned out. I just used a box mix and canned frosting. Mr. Fish is simply a 9-inch round single layer cake frosted with icing I tinted green and deocrated with candy orange slices and gumdrops. Since I had extra batter after making the cake I also made a bunch of mini cupcakes to serve as bubbles and topped them with a bunch of "Aqua Life" Swedish fish candies. Happy Birthday Aaron!
