This one was for my best friend Jennifer's birthday! She wanted a Manatee cake, and so that is what she got. :nod: His tail and flippers were yellow cake, the rest was chocolate, all with homemade buttercream frosting, which made the chocolate slices taste just like Oreo Cakesters... Mmmm! :hungry: He's also got frosting spray and powdered chocolate on him, to make him a bit mossy and realistic!

I named him "Tike," 'cuz he's all cute and chubby and stuff. :giggle: This guy was a lot of work, but SO MUCH FUN, and I was so proud of how he came out in the end! :love: I even made him a little bit of "environment," - cupcake rocks with chocolate kelp/grasses, and some sprinkled chopped nuts for riverbed gravel... :giggle:

Fun stuff! :boogie: Yay for CAKE! :cake: :party:
