Mermaid Cake

Mermaid Cake, originally uploaded by bakers-cakes.

This cake is based on the Barbie Doll Cake design. However, given that Ariel has a tail, the doll's legs are inside the cake and the tail is designed into the cake. It was so much fun to create her scaly shiny mermaid tail. I drew each scale with an exacto knife and then painted them with luster dust! While she is sitting on rocks, I didn't want the majority of the cake to be grey and brown, so I painted swirls of blue, green, and turquoise for the rocks to keep with the colors my client requested. The water swirl details add a whimsical touch to this sweet cake for a sweet five year old girl!


  1. This is super cute! I loved The Little Mermaid when I was little. (Oh, who am I kidding, I love it now!) Great job!

  2. What a great idea - it looks so amazing!
