Molly's Mermaid






My little niece turned 4 today and we had an "Under the Sea" party with mermaid/pirate fancy dress. Molly told me the mermaid HAD to have a pink tail and asked for a shark coming out of the water.

I modelled the mermaid to match the image I used when I designed her invites. I wish I got more pictures of the party but sadly the lighting wasn't the best in the hall where the party was held.

Originally I had planned to make these pirate cookies for the "loot bags" but the cake took longer than I thought and I ran out of time so instead I went with starfish. Each child also got a personalised sweetie bag full of sea/pirate candies.

Happy birthday you gorgeous girl xx

Beautiful cake as always! :-)
Can I ask you what kind of paste you use when making the hair? I assume you are using a sugar craft gun...
I have one of those but I just can't seem so get hair done that pretty... ;-)

You are incredibly talented! Your cakes are so beautiful! I have been creating cakes for about 2 years now and still consider myself a novice. My nephew came across your hunting/fishing cake and asked me to make it for him but I have yet to attempt to make sugarpaste figurines. I would like to learn but not sure where to begin. Is there an instructional book that you can recommend that would help me in creating some of the figures? Any ideas or help you can give me is greatly appreciated.

Visit Lorraine's blog, she sells her tutorials and is the MASTER at modelling figures :O)
