Mermaid Cake

Image

I love the cute little mermaids on this cake.  My daughter wanted a mermaid cake and I wanted to do something different than Ariel.  I was inspired by a really similar cake by Hello Naomi.  She’s my cake idol, she’s amazing.  I made the mermaids out of fondant, and the star fish I shaped out of gum paste.  The mermaids were a little heavier than I thought they’d be so they pulled on the buttercream a little bit, you can see the cracking on the bottom one….oh well.  Sorry about the bad pictures….the food processor and the outlet make a great backdrop!
