Aubrey loved her mermaid cake. I made this cake the same weekend that I made the Toy Story cake so I was pressed for time. If I had more time I would have added more shell and added star fish and maybe an octopus. If she wants a mermaid cake again next year I'll be sure not to do another cake the same weekend. The mermaids are made with gum paste because it dries faster than fondant. I painted the tails with shimmer dust to make them pink.
