Surfin' USA {3D surfing cake}

I have a feeling if we were on the westcoast, I'd get more orders for a cake like this. Laurie ordered this design for her older brother who turns 40 this weekend, and loves to surf!! I didn't really have any idea how to do a cresting "white capped" wave until I started frosting. But it all came together. My trick -- a thick layer of white frosting under the blue, and when I frosted the wave with a top layer of blue, I dipped my spatula down into the white every few strokes. Not sure if the picture does this one justice - it's much cuter in person!
