Cliffs of dover cake

Here is an unusual cake request I got. 
It was for a man who is celebrating 50 years since he was the 1st New Zealander to swim the English Channel… so I made him a cake that represents the white cliffs and him swimming towards them.
The cake is 4 layers of butter cake… iced with swiss meringue buttercream and fondant.
The light house and swimmer are also fondant.
Grass is piped on with grass tip and green icing.
Waves were made by piping a line of white icing and using a small brush to look like its breaking.
Thanks for looking 🙂
