Little Mermaid and friends......

Me thinks that this cake from the beginning was bit JINXED.......This is how it started .........

Started couple of weeks ago on the topper for a cake which I had promised a while back for a close friend of ours’ daughter who wanted Ariel, took a while to do this, was not really happy with the proportions but I was too tired and painful to do anything more on her decided that I had finished with her, took some photos and when I was picking her up, she toppled over and fell…... the tail broke and then had another accident and the hand broke :-(. Didn’t end up doing anything on it for a week or two.Finally two weeks ago I got around to trying my hand at fixing her. (First two picture are before the accident and the pics after that is after the fix).

She doesn’t look like an Ariel I envisioned …...even had thoughts about redoing her, In my present state I didn't end up however…..

Making of Sabastian and Flounder went without any mishaps luckly.To tell you the truth,  I quite love how Sabastian has turned out....

This cake was supposed to have been made for next Sunday for the kids party(the actual birthday was yesterday). 

I got a call from the distraught friend that she had been misinformed at the place she had booked initially they had said that she could bring the cake but now they are saying she can't,  even if she buys their cake. She wanted to know whether I had started the cake already and if I have started whether it is possible to get it the next day with minimal decoration maybe just sprinkles for the actual birthday. Initially I was a bit reluctant being not sure about the thawing the buttercream and filling and also my son had a school program which started at 5:30 and finished at 8:00pm, then I thought of my friend's little girl who was very excited that I was making a cake for her so I decide that I will do it somehow. 

Luckily for me , it was a really hot day, the toppers were ready, microwave and the mixer were at hand, however this was not the cake design I had planned to do for Sunday which would take lot more time and I was short on time. 

So after a sleepless night this is what I came up with .....made with love.... Our friends were quite happy with it me thinks......

So now that we have come to the end our story ;-)........... what do you think?

Thank you for looking, reading.


  1. Really good job I would say. I think Ariel looks very real. And Sabastien and Flounder are so so super cute. I love it. You know, you should thinking about sharing your pictures on tumblr. It's just like a picture book. So people can just see the pictures. It would be lovely. I don't know where you find the energy. This looks like really tough work. It was also very sweet. What you did for your friend's daughter. Big hug!!

    In this coming year, may all your dreams come true and happiness fill your days. Creating seems to give your a sense of purpose and satisfaction. What more eh?

  2. Aww..... that's one of the loveliest comments I have received so far, Thank you so much.. Will have to have a look at tumblr, Thanks. All the very best to you for the next year too


It would be so lovely to hear your feedback. Please comment.
