Rowing Cake!

This cake was for me and my teammates for our end of the year crew party. This cake was bigger than most that we make, but it had to feed a lot of people. The cake is white cake and chocolate fudge filling, covered in blue fondant. The boat shell, riggers, and oars were made from gum paste. The gumpaste was pained emerald green and gold (the colors of Pocock Rowing Center) with food coloring. There is a lot of detail in this boat; seats, tracks, foot stretchers and riggers. The oars even have the design that the clubs real oars do. The Pocock club symbol is in each corner and was made from colored buttercream icing. The gold medals are made from caramelized sugar and the waves in the water are buttercream icing. Great job 2010 Novice Girls' Rowing!
