One of the reasons I love making cakes is being part of special moments.
I made this cake for a little boy turning 1, his mom had a Nautical theme party in mind and wanted a cake to match the party invitation and décor.
I didn't have cutters for the sizes of the elements that I needed to incorporate in the cake, so I got some templates online, printed them out in the size I need them and hand cut them .
I did had a handy letter mold of the letters.
I used a Styrofoam ball to make the crab because I was short in time, but rice crispy treats will work great. For the crab I use all gumpaste.
I also made a little smash cake for the birthday boy.
