Today I have made this mermaid cake. The cakes is covered in sugar paste. I have sponge painted the “rock” with gel colors and clear alcohol. The mermaids tail is modelled in sugar paste with CMC/Tylo powder and the body is modelled in marcipan mixed with a little sugar paste and some CMC/Tylo powder to keep it stabel.
I have used a Sugarcraft gun to make the mermaids hair. It is a brilliant tool that have 16 different pattern discs which makes you able to create fx. hair and strings.
To complete the cake have I used a silicone bead maker to make the pearlboarder. I gave the pearls some luster dust as a finishing touch.
