My uncle Nate turned 50 last week and I was asked to make him a cake. I was actually really excited to do it because my uncle has done a lot for me and my family over the years.
I was asked to do something with a fish since he is a fisherman.
On the top of the cake was an oversized fish coming out of the water. I didn't actually make the fish. After several failed attempts of my own, I went to my brother and asked him to make something.
I love the look of the tall reeds and cattails. I had to include cattails because I have so many memories of playing with them while my dad fished when I was little.
You can't tell the scale from these pictures but it was actually a pretty big cake. Probably one of the biggest I've done.
Happy 50th Nate. We love you.
