Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This cake by The Mischief Maker features three hand sculpted sugar mermaids and sea plants. There is a sugar shell throne with pillow and pearl. It also features a bottom tier covered in hand sculpted sugar coral. The other two tiers are covered with sugar ruffles/frills. The mermaids hair color resembles the birthday girl's hair, the red hair of her aunt, and her mother's blonde locks.

Thank you so much! I really tried to nail down the colors. The birthday girl's aunt had red hair. The baby had brown hair and the mother blonde. I think vintage mermaids were a fun twist :)
