A BlackBerry Cake - no, not the fruit

This is the second BlackBerry cake that I have made. The first one was much smaller, this cake feeds 25-30 people. It is 3 layers of sour cream chocolate cake with swiss meringue buttercream and covered in fondant

It was so much fun to make - I love painting on the details. It was for a 70th birthday for a guy who loves his BlackBerry.

A Big Blue Whale

It's a big blue whale! I made this cake for a software design and management company called the Jonah Group. They were celebrating their 7th birthday.
Originally, for this techie crowd, I was trying to make a spout at the top with ones and zeros coming out. But at the last minute, I couldn't make it work without using inedible items (which I didn't want to do.
The cake was alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla butter cake with swiss meringue buttercream covered in blue fondant. They sent me some pictures from their event - I like the picture of the whale cake being eaten, but he's still smiling! :-)
