Octopus Cake

My son just turned 11 and he requested an Octopus cake, even though his "Birthday Party Theme" was army/camo - 11 year old boys, who can figure them out?   It was a little daunting, but after a few hours and a few glasses of wine, I think I was able to accomplish something that looked like it crawled from the depths :)!  The cake is vanilla with chocolate ganache filling.  The arms are rice krispy treats, fondant and royal icing.  The cake is hand - painted with gel and powder icing color.
