Online recipe What is the name of the online recipe? 3D Mermaid Cake Link to the recipe artisancakecompany.com/2013/02/how-to-make-a-3d-sculpted-mermaid-cake/ Special instructions for the recipe Advanced modeling techniques for a sculpted mermaid cake. Intermediate level, should have some knowledge of sculpting, fondant covering, basic cake techniques. Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake PVC Pipe, pvc cutters, 1/2 flange, 14" round wood board, screws, cake foil to cover board, white modeling chocolate, Rice Krispy Treats, 3 quarter sheet cakes, swiss meringue buttercream, fondant, food color (hand painted and airbrushed) What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the facial features What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an extremely IN-DEPTH tutorial and it is LONG. It is for decorators who have at least some experience in sculpting cakes and a basic understanding of decorating principles. I do not go over how to cover a cake, or how to ice. I tried to be a detailed as possible so I would not consider this a quick and easy sculpted cake. This is just my process and I am sure there are better/quicker ways of doing these things but this is mine. I hope you enjoy it <3
