This cake was so much fun to make and it allowed me to use Candy melts again which I love using and they create a fab water effect – perfect for a swimming pool cake.
The cake was a vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream filling. Made from an 8″ square cake, shaped into a rectangle. The brief was Aqua Aerobics and it seems there have not been many Aqua Aerobic themed cakes made and put on the internet so far.
The board was covered in white icing, then using a square plunger cutter I marked it to look like tiles and replaced a few white tiles for green tiles. The sides of the cake were done in a similar way, this time the lines were made using a ruler with a few squares cut out with the plunger cutter and replaced with green.
The models were made and left to set over night, then in the morning I melted the candy melts and poured the mixture over the top of the cake and placed the models in before it set.
Hey presto an Aqua Aerobics themed cake!!
