I made this Little Mermaid Birthday Cake for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. She LOVES The Little Mermaid and had to have a mermaid party. I looked at the Wilton cake pan and didn’t like it. I came and looked on this web site and got TONS of ideas.
I made a buttercream transfer. This is basically using a coloring book picture and putting wax paper over it and then tracing the image. You then need to put the picture in the freezer for at least 90 min. (I put mine in a plastic bag and kept it for 3 days). Then you lay your picture down on the cake and remove the wax paper and you have your image.
I’m not very artistically inclined and this was my first attempt which I thought turned out pretty good. It was easy! Then I used candy melts and a shell mold to make the shells. The sand is brown sugar.
