Here’s another incredible, edible, and ocean-themed creation by Ichthyology student and food artist extraordinaire, Diane Haas. Baked in honor of Simon Brown’s recent thesis defense, the cake depicts Simon’s two study species – the Berring Skate (top) and the Aleutian Skate (bottom). The differences between the two skates are small, but accurately rendered! Since this was a thesis about diet, it’s only fitting that there should be some “prey items” for garnish. Check out some of Diane’s other masterpieces featuring sharks and rockfish!
