I made this Little Mermaid Birthday Cake for a third birthday party. Both levels are double layer. This made the cake fairly heavy, so before icing, I put skewers vertically through the top layer to add stability. Fairly easy to make.
Different seaweed types, rocks, jelly bellies, gummy sharks, some fish, etc. all found at specialty candy store. The shells, Ariel, palm trees, umbrella and some creatures not candy (dollar store). Blue sparkly sugar (Michael’s) really added a realistic effect, to plain blue icing. Made it very shimmery and looked more water like. Sand is graham cracker crumbs.
