Time flies! It's my girl Ashly 5th Birthday! This year she request a mermaid/princess cake. I know she likes the character of Little Mermaid but there is no way I can do a similar one for her. I also don't have enough time to get for her any toppers (haha...tons of reasons). Hence I decided to google for mermaid cake image. In this era, Internet & googling really helps to solve many of my problems :)
Using what I have learnt from my baking lesson I used the same set up and just change the design and pipe a mermaid tail. I think I did badly on the scale part. I used the piping tip meant for piping petal and the cream is too soft to hold the shape. I make use of piping jelly to pipe the crab and tortoise. As for the fish I used melted chocolate to pipe the shape the fish. The chocolate are left over coating for my mini donuts which I have packed in a box of 2 to be given to the children at the end of the celebration. Just decorating the cake itself took me 3 1/2 hours.
I hope Ashly have a wonderful celebration in school and Mummy wish you 快高长大，身体健康！
