The groom's cake for the rehearsal dinner was a blue crab holding the bride and groom in its claws. To make this I started with light blue fondant and airbrushed the rest of the colors on, the removed some in appropriate spots to give the effect of the shell. The colors on blue crabs are pretty bright in spots, so that was colorful cake number one.
On another note, I signed up to participate in the BlogHer event National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo.) that mean that I'm going to be posting something EVERY DAY this month. So if you have topics you'd like to see covered let me know. I have a few things scheduled but I could always use more ideas!
