Shark_5_thumb Thanks. I made the cake by baking two round cakes one 10" and the second 8". Bottom one I left as it came out of the pan as the base. To sculpt the nose I cut the second cake to about 4/5 inch circle and with the cutoffs mixed with some frosting I sculpted the fins and filled in the nose area to smooth down towards the base. Then covered the whole thing first in caramel and then buttercream frosting. I tried putting fondant over all that but that didn't worked out as planned so I just tried to smooth the frostig best I could. I still used white fondant for the eyes and mouth and the black outlIne really brought it all together and made it more illustrative. Regards Elle

Shark_4_thumb Thanks. I've had those for years - I think I might have bought it at Target or Home Depot.

Thank you. The waves I just cut out of different blue color card stock and layered them all around the table behind the happy birthday banner. Other Shark items and the happy birthday garland are available in my etsy store:
