Shark week in cake!


So I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have been surrounded by all things Shark Week this past week.  I swear that everywhere I turn there it is…. on Facebook, on Google, on my iPhone (thanks hubby for the “Learn Sharks” app you downloaded), and of course on our tv.   I personally am not interested in seeing animals being mangled by sharks, but my kids (and the rest of the planet) seem to be fascinated by it.

So in honor of the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, here is a Jaws cake that I made for my nephew’s 7th birthday.  (Big props go out to my sister for her help on this cake!)

Jaws birthday Cake for shark week

G rated Jaws cake 🙂

The scuba diver and 50+ shark teeth along with all the ocean creatures made the small cake very complex and time consuming.  Well over 10 hours were invested in this birthday cake, but the investment was well worth it, because the end result was spectacular!  And the birthday boy was thrilled with his cake!  So was his little brother who took a chunk out of the cake when we weren’t looking!  But I guess that’s pretty appropriate for a Jaws cake!

What kind of cake would you think would capture the essence of Shark Week?
