Yellow submarine birthday cake

We all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm… (me singing)

This cake actually caused a lot of headache yesterday. I only had one day to make it from scratch and I was also home alone with our baby boy most of the day. To make it even more challenging, it was 26°C in the kitchen. My buttercream and ganache were melting too. I was thinking about giving up and not doing 3D cakes anymore, as they are absolutely not cooperative creations.  They just don’t care what I want, they form all kinds of shapes regardless of what they are meant to be. 
Meanie cakes.
Anyway, at the end it all started to come together and around midnight I looked at it and I was happy with it. 
(By the time I cleaned up the kitchen – which looked like Jake, my 8 months old son, had been baking, not me – it was 1:00 am.) I went to bed exhausted but happy.  So maybe I won’t give up on 3D cakes just yet.  At least I really challenge myself once in awhile.

I hope you all like it, the customer absolutely loved it. I’m still waiting for their feedback to hear weather the 11 year old The Beatles fan liked it too.
