For my niece’s 18 birthday, she wanted a Dori from Finding Nemo cake, she loves her! So I made a regular cake, outlined Dori and made seaweed on the bottom of the cake. I used a white icing background.
Piped Dori, free handed, in black. Filled her in with blue and teal green, and yellow icing. For the seaweed I used the blue, teal green, and yellow icing. She loved it! It really turned out nice. I only use the butter cream icing, and the Wilton icing color gels. I did use the Wilton black piping icing in the tube for the out line. That was the first time I used it and I loved it! I will never mix up black icing again just for piping!
I used the #16 tip from Wilton to fill in the details. Also the scallop tip for the cake edges, I used the left over icing for that. Enjoy!
