Water, Earth and Sky themed cake

We got a chance to put together a very unique cake recently. The water, earth and sky themed cake was for a little boy’s 1st birthday.

We made a tiered cake with an underwater-themed bottom tier, jungle-themed middle tier and sky-themed top tier. The bottom tier was a Simply Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and mixed fruit filling. The middle tier was a Mango Tango cake with mango mousse filling, and the top tier was a Raspberry Rush cake with raspberry mousse filling. Each tier was decorated with a combination of edible and non-edible toppers. We ended up working 7 hours straight in putting together this cake, and were pretty pleased with the result.
