This was something that I give a lot of credit to Yummy Arts for,because I used a lesson of their's from Susan Carberry. It was kind of tricky, but then later in the year, I made a Nemo cake using this for a base. I just had to cut the shaping a little different to make the fish vertical, plus it was a cartoon face! I find that after I try a few things, I get the hang of it, then others are far more easier to do.

I found these other pics, including the cake put together before I airbrushed it. Using a template that I printed out, I laid it over the half sheet cake that I had previously filled and began cutting according to the print-out. You could make your own print-out by drawing, if you are comfortable with that, on tracing paper or other paper that is see through, at least that is how I like my paper to be. Then, I started cutting. I did a "dirty icing" and let set up for a couple of hours in the fridge before covering it with fondant. I made the fins our of gum paste and let them dry, using dowels to hold the shaping. I used toothpicks to stick in the sides to hold and level the fins that do not touch the boards. If you want, you can also use thin dowels. I airbrushed in several layers and colors. I can't do a tutorial at this point, but if there is enough response or interest, It would be fun to make one again! The scales were made with a piping tip.
