Little Mermaid

I keep waiting for everything to slow down...I even picture myself having some free time to sit at the computer (maybe even with a cup of coffee) and get caught up on blogging. Such a nice thought right!?  But with 3 boys, full time job, remodeling a craft room, soccer, etc...I think getting 'caught up' is a nice goal...but not very realistic. At this point, I think sharing halloween or Christmas pictures are sort of pointless, don't you??  So I'll start with what's current instead.  We'll start with a recent cake project and in a few days I'll try to get everyone an update with the boys :) 
So, here she of my favorite cakes to date.  Thanks to Hana...she comes up with great cake ideas and I get to bring them to life, so to speak!  And the opportunity to do a 'girly' can I pass that up? The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite Disney movies and Hana created a wonderful party for Halle with the most perfect little details.  Visit her blog and you'll fall in love with all the little details and ideas....complete down to the dinglehopper!

For all the other 'cake peeps' out there...I achieved the ombre effect by starting with the dark fondant and gradually adding white fondant as I went.  Each scale was placed on the cake individually to get the right look.  The coral elements were made with royal icing piped onto wax paper.  After they dried, i flipped them over and piped more royal icing on the back to make them thicker and I loved the way they turned out!
