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.
