This Mermaid Birthday Cake is the first time I tried something like this. I used a Cherry Chip Cake Mix for the cake and a fashion doll from a dollar store. The ‘rocks’ are out of popcorn and chocolate almond bark. The sandy area is simply brown sugar.
Then made butter cream. I also used pre-made Wilton frosting just to make sure that I didn’t have any problems with the icing I made being stiff enough.
I wrapped some saran wrap around the bottom of the doll and sat her in place and then using a decorating kit I covered her legs. I found the big leaf tip worked the best for me. I used the small shell tip for her top and the shells around the bottom.
