My son Ben is crazy about wildlife and his favourite TV show is Deadly 60 with Steve Backshall, so a Great White Shark was the perfect specimen for his 7th birthday cake.
I built it as if it was breaching out of the water to attack and wanted to add a playful twist to the occasion so I added a lucky dip game inside the stomach of this tasty apex predator - the idea being that the kids would have to carefully put their arm into the belly of the beast and fish out squidgy treats without touching its sugary sharp teeth.
Here's the video of how it was made and Ben and his friends enjoying it.
