Alright, let's just get to the point of it - it's a dolphin. Of course I insisted on carving the shape by hand (who needs a pan?) but somehow among the carving and icing this sea creature seemed to morph. I turned to my most trusted critics and all guessed it to be a dolphin (with the exception of my dad, who guessed t-rex...), so I decided maybe I was being a little too critical. This is why it is best to make such creations for people you have known for over 20 years (a greater number in light of us only being 26). Besides, I'm pretty sure the 3 layers of chocolate cake and 2 layers of vanilla buttercream and fresh strawberries ended all questions regarding the specimen of what was being consumed.
