The Cake Blues

For this week's blog, I once again got to go under the sea. Birthday girl Lizzie told her Mom Sharon, that she wanted a cake with Ariel the Little Mermaid on it. And not only did she want Ariel, but she wanted the cake to be blue inside and out. I decided to make a Kool-aid cake to achieve the blue color without killing it with food coloring. To make Ariel and Flounder for the cake, I used marshmallow fondant. I also used the fondant to make some coral and seaweed to decorate the sides.

After cutting all the pieces out of fondant, I used a food coloring markers to outline Ariel and Flounder. I added candy pearls to make bubbles.

Bright color coral and seaweed to complete the sides.

Under the Sea for birthday girl Lizzie!
