Mermaid

Barbie's fish tail is made of gumpaste and fondant, making it appear that she sits on the cake. She is actually stuck into the center as requested by my 6 yr old. The shells are moulded chocolate and the coral is royal icing. All is theoretically edible except for Barbie herself.

That is great - My niece wants a mermaid cake, and I wasn't sure how I was going to do this. I would love to borrow your idea. Any advice on the tail?

what was the technique you used for the scaling of the tail...I took a rather pains taking path...and I think yours looks more "realistic (if there could be such a thing wiht a mermaid -HA).
