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!
