Boat cake

This is my latest cake. This was really a challenge. I've never made a boat cake especially with sugar paste figures. Well poor man he's not the most handsome man on earth but anyways. I m quite happy with this cake although next time I would surely improve on the finishing touches. This cake consists of vanilla cake layered with chocolate ganache.

I love the blue piping around the bottom. To disguise where the cake and board meet and also to represent the sea, it's a really good idea. Little things like that can really make a cake.
