A Whale of a good time!

I can hardly believe it is promotion time again for our Cub Scouts! For the last several years I have made the cake to celebrate our scouts as they are promoted in rank. This year I decided to do something different. Instead of trying to represent things that we have done that year, I just did something fun. That is what scouts are all about right? Having fun while we slip in some great learning opportunities.

So our whale friend here is having a good time playing with the scouts. 

This guy is totally my favorite!

I tried to make all the boys a little different, so they all feel a little different about the fun being had, but in the end, I think they all had a good time... I know the boys in our pack sure loved the cake!

Unfortunately we were not able to capture the best part... this cake came with special effects! Mist was shooting out the top between the whale's water spout and the bottom of the boat. I used dry ice and had a small tub run up the center of the spout ending about 1/2" below the bottom of the boat. I had the tube run out the bottom of the cake stand to a sealed bucket under the table. Then I could refill the bucket as needed. It worked great!

For those who may be interested, the boat is cake, the whale is cake, and so is the water (with piped buttercream waves). The spout is chocolate and the boys are all fondant. The whale's tail is gum paste. 

Thanks for looking! And to all my scouts, thanks for another great year and I am looking forward to another great year! Congratulations on all your hard work.
