I had so much fun making this Mermaid Theme cake! The cake is a Vanilla Chiffon cake with Oreo buttercream filling. The cake is a 2-tiered cake, 6-inch round and 9-inch round.
Let me show you how I started. Once I have a design, then I start with decoration items. These items are made at least 1 to 3 weeks before the cake is due so that thse items can be solid when it’s time for assembly. The requestor sent a photo of cake she wanted, it had this cool “5” with mermaid tail which I fell in love with that one. So I had to make one too. She also liked a silhouette of mermaid from another cake photo, so I incorporated that too. I really wanted to have a cake topper, so that is how a Giant Clam Shell was created. Since I didn’t have any mold for the big shell, I just cut and shaped in the way I wanted.
On the day before, I started to bake cakes and stack up cakes with my Swiss Meringue Buttercream. Here is a naked iced 9-inch cake.
After both cakes have been assembled, then I worked on the fun decorations. Well I’m not going into details to bore you.
