Lighthouse Cake


Made for a honeymoon on a boat the design was to be romantic and nautical.  I created this cake by painting a sunset and then using black fondant to make mountains and a lighthouse silhouette.
The Reef or Square Knot was actually the most challenging aspect of this cake.
The knot was made from a fondant roll that I used to actually tie the knot but fondant has nowhere near the strength of rope hence the challenge.
P.S.  For all those out there that want their initials on their cake make sure your initials don’t spell anything, I was told to put an I and an M on the cake which I did, however at first glance I realized the cake then said I’m on top and quickly reversed their order.
