This Little Mermaid cake was for a friend who’s hubby works in the merchant navy and always misses her birthday as he is out sailing. In 2012 he was down for the first time and wanted to surprise her with a party. He also wanted a special cake. All I could think of is the mermaid (his wife) waiting for her sailor husband, and here it is.
The couple is crazy about chocolate and hence a moist gooey chocolate cake with marzipan covering and all detailing of marzipan as they do not like sugar paste..
