Little Mermaid and Flounder to celebrate turning 18

This has been one of my favourite cakes to make so far this year.  It was bright and colourful with my favourite Disney characters on – what was not to love!!

The cake was a made from 3 tiers of lemon sponge with lemon sponge cupcakes to go with it.

The Ariel cake topper was bought as a complete piece with Ariel sat on a rock, and Flounder was made from fondant.

The shells were made using a shell mould and fondant, decorated with edible dust mixed with rejuvenator fluid and steamed to create a gorgeous shine on them.

The sand is mixture of different sugars, coconut and crushed seeds.
