Here’s a picture of my daughter’s birthday cake. I used an “Ariel” candle and Flounder and Sebastian (the yellow fish and the crab for those of you who do not have kids and don’t know the names of the characters) are plastic toys my daughter had.

Rozanne, that is a lovely cake! I like the way you did the water part. The texture you gave the frosting with a palatte knife is so effective—almost like the way Monet would have done it if he frosted cakes!

ROZANNE:
  Good afternoon. Thank you for sharing your birthday photo’s with us. I enjoyed seeing & marveling the artistic talent (s) that it required to compose a cake like that. Your daughter has a special Mommy I so think.
  Enjoy the rest of the day young lady.

Rozanne, thank you so much for sharing your pictures.  Love the way you did the wave, by adding/slicing part of the round cake.  So clever.

Rozanne, Amazing cake - I love the feeling of being underneath the ocean.  What cake/frosting recipes did you use?

Thank you everybody for the lovely compliments. I am so flattered. Thank you again.

The cake was Rose’s chocolate butter cake. I used the chart at the back of the book and made two 8” cakes. I used one cake for the bottom and cut the other cake in half and stacked it. I used the ganache glaze Rose posted on the blog to keep the cake moist. The buttercream was SMBC using Rose’s mousseline bc ingredient quantities. The coral, starfish etc were all piped with the SMBC and frozen before I placed them on the cake.

The cake is adorable! The stacked cake halves for the undersea effect are so clever.

My daughter’s b’day cake. Lemon cake (I used Rose’s White Velvet butter cake but added a little lemon zest to it) filled with lemon mousseline and frosted with vanilla mousseline. My daughter requested this flavour combination.

What a beautiful cake!  So feminine, ideal for a girl, she must have been thrilled showing it off!  Did you have a special tin or have you cut it like that yourself?
