Old Spice Cake by ginas-cakes Old Spice Cake by ginas-cakes
This is one I've just finished. All I was asked to do is a theme from the new Old Spice advert for her husband 50th......so drew up a design, and she loved it.

It's a victoria sponge with all edible bits. The Old Spice bottle is 2cm to give you an idea of how big the little ship I had to paint on was...:)

I know...I watched it on youtube...quite a few times before working out the design.
It's sad, but commercials have got that good, that rather than make a coffee, I'll sit and watch them..^^

The sand is light brown sugar...and the little pearls are from a tub of cake decorations. There were pink and white balls in them, and I had to pick out all the white ones...:)

:giggle:....I couldn't bring myself to make him 'all' man, so I had a pot of pink and white edible decorations, and spent ages picking the white ones out.
I had my mind set that I was only going to paint the ship onece....so it was all or......something that looked like a ship shape! :)
