This Mermaid Birthday Cake Design was of course inspired as much by Debbie Brown as it was by my niece’s love of mermaids! I chopped into 3 round sponge cakes, descending gradually in size and covered each with a slightly different green/blue RTR. I followed one of DB’s amazing cake books for ideas of how to make the seaweed, octopus and mermaid and glued them all to the cake using sugar syrup.
This was so much fun to make! I definitely recommend Debbie Brown’s books as they are easy to follow and you can adapt her techniques to make other creations of your own!
