Fishing under the track cake
My son turned two about the same time as we celebrated father's day. Since we had my family and my husband's family over, I made a big cake. The top layer is a cheesecake where it is marbled blue (it's supposed to be the sky. Did you get that?) and the bottom layer is a 14" round cake surrounded by Geotrax trains. I added candy rocks and a man sculpted from fondant with a pretzel and spaghetti noodle fishing pole. The pier is constructed if tootsie rolls slightly melted over stick pretzels. I used bamboo skewers to support the inside portion of the track and uphold the sky. Candy fish and crushed oreo road base complete the look for the cake.
