For this party, the theme was mermaid, but Linden’s mom sent me this picture – hoping to have a cake that was less character-based and more whimsical and pretty and oceany (if that’s a word… wink!).
Her colors were pale aquamarine, silvery grey and coral… and I was super excited about doing this cake!
… and on the starfish and other decorations.
For the large shell, in case you’re wondering, I used gum paste tinted the coral color (a mix of pink and orange) and I cut out a circle, then folded it over and pinched the edges to make the shape. I added the ball of fondant on the inside and let it all dry for 3 days to harden. Then I dusted it with the shimmer dust!
Do you have any questions about this cake? Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
