I made this Swimming Pool Cake for a fourth grade graduation pool party. Because nine boys and eight girls were to attend, I decided to make each out of fondant and placed them in the pool.
I colored piping gel with electric blue ‘gel food color’ for the water. For the sides, I used a #127 rose tip with an up and down motion, and #32 shell tip for the border. I colored more gel with black “gel food color’ for trim around the side of the cake.
This is decorating is done by filling gel bags with 3-4 tablespoons and squeezing hard with up and down motion while turning your cake wheel. Oh, one more tip… I made curly hair by rolling fondant thin and wrapping it around a tooth pick.

Very clever cake! I’ll bet the kids loved it. It was soooooo cute!
This is an amazing cake. I love the fact that you put each child in the pool. I bet that really made them feel special.
I agree with the other comments – I bet the kids all felt really special. Thanks for the great pictures!
I was just wondering when you placed the gel on top did you do a crumb layer underneath with like white icing or did you directly place the gel on the cake?
I love the idea the way you made each child look like. You are great in what you do! Fabulous job! Looks so real. Kids probably felt so special! Love it!
