This cake is one of the favourite ones I have made. I hope you like it.
My friend Pete is a keen diver, he actually was one of my diving instructors so it seemed apt to make him a diver cake. He also prefers the icing to cake, so this allowed for icing additions that he could eat with the cake.
The reef was fun to make, and included a number of seaweeds, clams (complete with some pearls) and a starfish. It may not be ecologically accurate, but was fun to make and did taste good. He even approved of the cake underneath the icing.
