This is an under the sea mermaid themed birthday cake. I made a Madeira sponge cake filled with butter cream and jam. I covered it with icing/fondant and then created the creatures using different coloured icing. I created the mermaid by using a Doll Pick for the head and body. I made her tail and covered her chest area with icing and to make the pattern in her tail I used a basket weave rolling pin. I then used a leaf cutter to make the fin parts of the tail. The sand at the base of the cake is brown sugar.
