Paul introduces us to his ocean inspired Sailor Boy Boat Cake. This cake tackles simple carving and stacking techniques, followed by wrapping different shades of sugarpaste to create blue ombre waves on the base tier. Aimed at beginners, this cake will only take a few hours to create and is perfect for a little boy’s birthday or christening.

We would love to see your version of the Sailor Boy Boat Cake - Please share your pictures with us on our facebook page!
