Bass Fish Cake

fish birthday cake

My husband and I recently returned from a fishing trip in Florida and he caught a 20-pound bass. He loves to fish, so I thought I would make a bass-shaped cake for his 26th birthday.

I used a white cake recipe and white icing. I baked the cake in a 13" x 9" pan and then cut the fish shape out of the pan. Once I was satisfied with the shape, I frosted the cake with a white icing. I waited for the frosting to dry completely and then added the decorations and features of the bass. After the icing was dried, I used edible paint and added the features of the fish to make the cake look like a real bass fish.

White Cake:

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk


1)Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2)Grease and flour a 13x9 inch pan.
3)In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter.
4)Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
5)Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
6)Stir in the milk until batter is smooth.
7)Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.
8)Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven.

White Icing:

4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup shortening
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon clear imitation vanilla extract


1)In a large bowl, combine sugar, shortening, water and vanilla.
2)Beat on low speed to combine, then beat on medium speed for a full five minutes until wanted consistency
