I have been in a crafty mood lately and I love baking! Not so much the eating, but the creating part is always fun. I chose my theme in spirit of Shark Week on Discovery Channel. This is also my first time using fondant and I kind of marbleized the color with some blue food coloring. The letters were kinda last minute and since it's just for my family I didn't feel like taking extra time to make them all neat and perfect. The cake itself is red velvet (what else, when Shark Week is around?!) with pink buttercream frosting. I wanted to take a picture of the cake once it's cut but nobody is home from work to see it yet!

You can kinda see the fin of the other shark popping up on the other side!

Edit: Here's the inside after my brother devoured the cake haha Smiley It was delicious.

Awesome! We don't have cable but I usually get to watch shark week at my grandma's, not this year though  Embarrassed it will be over by the time I go next week. I'd love to see a pic of the inside when you get a chance.

Thank you Smiley The family loved it, my mom wasn't a fan of the fondant though so she just peeled it off. Oh well, it's more for looks anyway.

Amazing!  The marbleized colour in the fondant looks great, and I love the sharks.  (And the fact that it's red velvet is perfect.)
