Mermaid Baby Shower Cake & Cupcakes

The mermaid theme is popular this year. This is my third opportunity to decorate with the mermaid theme. The cake is red velvet with cream cheese frosting and the cupcakes are vanilla with butter cream frosting.

Red Velvet Cake Balls

I have made over 200 cake balls/ pops within the past month. This year I decided to change the packaging by using decorative boxes.

Cake Ball gift boxes

I really wanted to show off my photo light box which my husband bought me but hadn’t baked anything to use it. The box has multiple light settings and various color backgrounds. I chose green for these gift boxes. The box allows me to take very professional looking pictures. This is a start but stay tuned for more beautiful pictures.

Army Strong Pull apart cake

This is a wonderfully delicious way to say welcome home to a soldier. Although it totally looks like a sheet cake, it’s actually made of strawberry cupcakes. Everything is edible. The dog tags are made of fondant which I spayed with silver edible color spray. The image is an edible image I designed and had printed at my local bakery. The letters are made of melted vanilla wafers and colored with edible spray and food color.

Mermaid Cupcakes

These are a delightful and delicious treat for a baby shower. The cupcakes are red velvet, Key Lime and strawberry. I made the fins by melting vanilla wafers and putting it into a mermaid fin mold. I used edible color spray and glitter to add additional colors.
