Several years ago I made a cake for my brother Jamie’s birthday, and it was perhaps the most visually spectacular cake I have ever made.
Sitting atop two layers of funfetti cake were two narwhals, their tusks dripping with blood, fighting to the death.
Swimming amongst seagulls made of marshmallows, the narwhals were actually twinkies dipped in warm frosting. I also used some swedish fish, which swam around the bottom, and sprinkle bubbles rose up around the sides as starfish sunned themselves in frosting.
This was a proud moment in my baking career.
