Yellow Submarine Cake

“So how do you feel about yellow submarine cakes?”

Thus began a conversation on Facebook with a friend of mine.  The result is this here cake.  Clearly, her newly minted 3 year old is awesome since Yellow Submarine is his favorite song.  I was super stoked to start this cake–I just knew it was going to be fun.  I wasn’t wrong.

The spouty things!  I loved how these turned out.

Of course it needed a rudder.  And cute water bubbles.

I knew I had to figure out a way to get the Fab Four on the cake somehow.  Solution?  Edible marker and portholes.  Let’s look a little closer at John, Paul, George and Ringo.  (Not in that order.)

And yes, John’s glasses are a little … well, I don’t know what’s going on with his glasses.  Just remember that I was working on faces smaller than a dime.  That’s tiny, y’all!

I was really happy with the way this cake turned out.  Perfect for celebrating a win over the Meanies.  Or a certain little boy’s third birthday.  Did I mention that my friend is also a nurse (my favorite!) at my daughters’ pediatrician’s office?  She is.  I have totally earned popsicles for life now, shot or no shot.  Avery and Zoe can thank me later.

Would you like to try your hand at a yellow submarine cake?  Lucky for you, I made a handy dandy tutorial.
