Mermaid Mini Fondant Cake and Cupcakes

mermaid cake/cupcakes

These little beauties were for my little great niece Hannah who was turning 2!  Courtney made the mermaid out of fondant (she did such a great job, the mermaid is so adorable!) and I made the seashells out of Wilton white candy melts then tried a little experiment and swirled in some with blue, some with pink and some with purple which came out really cute I think.  The cupcakes are Funfetti cupcakes with our favorite buttercream icing dyed blue.  The little mini cake (so cute!  we just got those tiny little cake pans at a store in Salt Lake called “Gygis”, what a great store for bakers like us!) is the White Almond Sour Cream cake recipe minus the almond with the same buttercream icing and then Duffs fondant from Michaels to cover.  I also sprinkled edible glitter dust over the cupcakes to make them sparkle and Cort added glitter dust to the “2” on the cake and also the mermaid’s tale.  I’m just in love with these!  Happy, happy 2nd Birthday to Hannah!

Here’s a closer look at the mermaid:
