Mermaid Cakes


A mermaid cake is a magical gift for any little birthday girl so we’ve brought you a selection of the prettiest cakes designs we could find.  Our feature cake above is exquisitely designed by Cake Avenue (Australia) and features beautiful ombre frills which cleverly create an ocean wave effect.

To help you with your own mermaid cake design, Cake Journal has a great tutorial on how to make a mermaid cake topper. You’ll also find a tutorial here to show you how to make fondant frills for your cake.

The cake below is a great cake for a little girl’s birthday by Baking Addict Australia, featured on Kara’s Party Ideas where you can find lots more ideas for your mermaid-theme party (Photo: White Spark Photography).  Brown sugar is used to create sand at the base of the cake which is sure to enthrall little party goers!
