This is really amazing. Did you carve the upper part of the wave out of cake?

Is the wave made completely of icing or is there cake making it substantial?

Is the wave itself buttercream or just an extension of the cake?

I could have carved it with cake, but I carved out a foam dummy cake instead.

Curiosity drives me to ask: How did you accomplished the underlying shape? Is it carved? Built out of cereal treats? Some other method?

Took a 6" dummy cake and carved it to it's shape. It's carved in such a way that a gumpaste surf board I made could sit on top or under the wave, and a baby sits on the board. I don't like sculpting with rice crispy treats, and if the customer wants to pay the price I will always use cake whenever possible. Rice crispys just seem like cheating the customer.

It's a very nice piece of work. Some would have considered the overhang of the wave "risky". I only see cereal treats as suitable in situations when weight needs to be saved (such as extremely lavish "super-cakes" that are almost more sculpture than they are cake).

I wasn't sure what method was needed, or if cake alone would be able to support that overhang (I haven't done enough fancy cakes to be able to eyeball this stuff, but I dream).

I came for the pretty horse creators ;) The impressive baked goods are a nice bonus!

LOL glad to give you a bonus. While I have done some risky things with cake before, I would not have done that with cake. Rice treats would have been better, because while cutting the foam, it would shed a little (I didn't have my hot wire cutter at work) so I wrapped it in cling wrap because I'm very anal with cross contamination. Usually in the bakery we have rice treats because we dip them and sell them in the case, but we did not have any at that time. When ever possible I like to find an alternative method to rice treats, and direct the client towards something else. I feel making a huge elaborate cake out of rice treats defeats the purpose of having cake.
