Tonight I want to share an “Under the Sea” cake…. and cookies… and cupcakes!
Yep, I got to make all kinds of fun stuff for this Under the Sea Party!
For this cake, I was asked to work with a specific color scheme and specific sea creatures. For most of the creatures (and for the cookies below), I used pre-made candy eyes… they’re such a time saver and they look great!
I did sharks, crabs, seahorses, dolphins, starfish, “regular” fish, and octopus! Since I was also doing cookies, I thought making the creatures on the cake from the same cookie cutter shapes, except 3-D, would be a good way to tie it all together!
Then there were the cupcakes. I originally planned to use the same cookie cutters for the cupcake toppers, but discovered a little too late that they were way too big for cupcakes, so I ended up using fondant in this Sea Creatures Chocolate Mold to make some smaller starfish, crabs and seahorses.
Overall, I was really happy with everything for this party! All of the cake and cupcakes were vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling and frosting. The cakes were 6″ and 10″ rounds. The border was brown sugar!
