Little Mermaid Cake

Happy 5th Birthday Cupcake #1! May 2005

This was a big cake and the idea came from the Family Fun
website which is the inspiration for several of my cakes! The yellow "hair" is cupcakes. The eyelashes, I think, are Necco sugar wafers pushed down into the cake on their side. This mermaid ended up well endowed because I had some extra cake so I decided to ice her "mermaid shells" green. This just brought up a cute thing Cupcake #1 said to me when she was 5 and so into mermaids. She put on my bra and stated, "Mom, I like your shells!" Ha! Ha! So cute!

The mermaid's tail is iced and decorated with Necco sugar wafers that you can find in just about any candy store. Yes, back when Rachel was five we had "mermaid mania" and she still loves mermaids to this day. She draws them very well and loves to read books with mermaid characters.
