What don’t we do for our little ones, huh? My daughter just turned 5 and she is obsessed with mermaids. I would say Ariel is her favorite Disney character and every toy to be fun has to have a tail. So I decided making a tail cake for her. I sketched a 2 tier cake but at the last minute she looked at me and said: “I think 3 tiers would be cuter mom”. Of course I did another tier but did not know how much work I got myself into it. I cut 500 scales in 4 different colors. It took me 4 to 5 hours just to cover all the prepared fondant cakes with the scales! Yes it is lots of love for my little one.  The next day when she woke up she had her jaw dropping and gave me the biggest hug ever. Her words to me paid off the very hard and tedious “gluing” of scales for all those endless hours. This cake was one of my very favorite cakes I have ever made. Please don’t get me wrong I love them all but this one holds a special place in my heart just because I made it for my “mermaid” princess that I love so very much!!! She deserves it, doesn’t she?Mermaid Tale Cake
