The Nemo Cake is a white cake with buttercream icing, all covered in blue fondant. The bottom cake is a 10 inch round and the top cake is a 6 inch round. Cakes are filled with buttercream icing. Cakes are covered in marshmallow fondant and all items are edible. The buttercream icing and marshmallow fondant were both made from scratch.
Both the Nemo and Dorey on the cakes are hand sculpted from fondant. The fish, turtles and other creatures were all hand sculpted as well. To save time, I made some of the fondant figures a week ahead of time and kept them in a sealed container in the refrigerator. The smash cake is a white cake with buttercream filling and fondant covering it.
I made this for my nephew’s second birthday and it was a hit!! This was my first attempt at a fondant cake. It was so simple. If I can do it, then anybody can do it.
