Around a year ago I consulted with a couple who had seen some of my work and liked the rock climbing cake I had done with the traditional front and the funky back (since dubbed the “mullet cake”).
They are both scuba divers and the groom is also a diving instructor so I knew from the outset it was going to be amazing.
After a few emails and brunches we came up with the basic design but I had a couple of ideas to make it really exciting. The hardest part was keeping the surprises from the bride, but i’m sure glad I did.
To get the cake as true to life as possible I had them send me some photos of dives they had been on and I started from there to create things you may find on a reef dive.
Pictures are way more fun than words so please find below the pictorial process. Feel free to get in touch with comments or feedback. I’d love to hear what you think.
