Scuba Diving/Under the Ocean Birthday Cake

"For there is no friend like a sister...”
~Christina G. Rossetti

So my little sisters, Suzanne & Maranne (and yes, they are twins!) recently turned 20 years old!  I am so very proud of them, because they also recently got their diving certification.  I was excited just listening to them describe the experience to me.  They say they have a brand new appreciation for marine life and everything beneath the sea, and I think that's really cool.  It must be an awesome adrenaline rush to drift down lower and lower, while the world up above disappears from view.

I had a blast helping them celebrate their big day down at the beach.  Of course, I told them that I had their birthday cake covered (imagine that!).  I had a fun idea in mind...a scuba diving cake to celebrate their certification!

This cake was so much fun to make.  They requested the Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake, which you might remember from an earlier post.  You can find the recipe HERE.  I've made this cake so many times now, and it always comes out amazing.  It's easily one of my favorites.

I also loved making Marshmallow Fondant the first time that I tried it, so I decided to make it again for this cake.  You can find the marshmallow fondant recipe HERE.   You'll find that it's a lot of messy fun to make!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful sisters, Suzanne & Maranne!  :-)

What a cute cake! I've always wanted to make fondant, but it seems very hard to make!
