This was made with love since this cake was my first time to make with an edible cake topper made from gumpaste. Making The Little Mermaid cake topper was really hard work. It took a lot of patience to be able to make this kind of cake since I am not a professional baker.
Making the Little Mermaid Cake Topper
In making gumpaste toppers, you should make it ahead of time because you need time for the gumpaste to dry. First, you will have to do the tail first then let it dry for at least 24 hours. Also do the same with the body and the head. After 24 hours, you should assemble the tail to the body and the body to the neck. Then, make the details of the face plus the hair.
It was a fulfilling work for me especially upon seeing the face of the little girl for whom I made this cake. She was so happy upon seeing her birthday cake. It was worth a try and fulfilling on my part.
