My daughter wanted an Ariel birthday cake this year. I've made a Little Mermaid birthday cake before, as well as tiered fondant princess cake, a girly princess flower cake and a princess castle cake.
I've been busy lately and I was at a loss of what type of cake to make. So, when a friend offered their Ariel cake pan, I took it. Except, I didn't want the little icing florets that you usually do on such cakes.
So, I decided to bring in the resident artist, aka The Hubby.
My hubby has drawn Ariel free-hand so many times for my daughter that we made a deal, I make the cake and colored icings and he sculpts it.
I think he did a fantastic job.
My daughter is one lucky gal.
