The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Mailbox

Recently, I took some time to make a cake that has been on my baking to-do list. Using a couple of things that I learned when I took Mike McCarey’s Advanced Cake Sculpting class on Craftsy, I decided to make a Zelda themed cake that would require an inner structure.  Being a total beginner at creating a cake skeleton, I made the Mailbox from LOZ: The Wind Wakerbecause I thought it would be easy. Ha!
