After seeing my original mermaid cake a while back, a friend of mine said to herself “I want that”. She’s a mermaid lover, so for her birthday this year, she asked me to make one for her.
I didn’t have any royal icing flowers to decorate this time so I just used buttercream to make the flowers and it made the cake very Hawaiian looking - all the more mermaid appropriate.
The hardest part was her face. I didn’t have any toothpicks to do the details, so I used dry spaghetti. It was a little too thick, so she is wearing a lot of black eyeliner. :)
