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.

This was a yellow cake with tinted blue icing. This was my first attempt at a cake...I was pleased until I had to drive 1 hour to get to the party and the jello ocean started to melt. Ops! Maybe next time will go better.

This was for a co-worker's 6 year old "Little Mermaid" birthday party.  This is the first cake I made for someone else - I just started cake decorating about 6 months ago and up to now it's been all practice.
The small shells, starfish and pearls are handmade fondant painted with luster dust.  The large shells are molded candy sitting on brown sugar sand.  The treasure chest is graham crackers with chocolate basket weave.  The seaweed is royal icing but everything else is buttercream.  I had great fun!

I made this cake for my daughters birthday.  The seashells are chocolate.   She loved this one.  It seems every cake I make - she wants "that one" for her next birthday.  Aren't kids great?  They make you feel good without trying very hard.

I got this design idea from another member of cakecentral (newbie). It was for a 6 year olds little girl's birthday party. The shells are made with candy melts and fondant. I used pearl luster dust to make them shine. The sea chest is graham crackers covered with buttercream icing. The cake is icied with buttercream. The sand is light brown sugar. I really had alot of fun making this cake!!

Here is my attempt at the Little Mermaid.  I made this for a friend's daughter.  She loves the Little Mermaid.  Inspired by Debbie Brown's mermaid cake.  The cake is iced with buttercream but all the characters and coral and such are fondant.  The board is a foam board with the top covered in fondant and painted to look like water.  The board had to be small so it would fit in there mini fridge so they could hide it.  I still need practice on human faces but overall I was happy.

I had the shaped pan,  but not the plastic insert. So i had to freehand her face and body.  I made this one out of a stacked cake and the wilton whipped icing topping.  It was fun to work with but it warmed too quickly and was a little runny to work with.

The seahorses are made from granulated sugar pressed into a sandpit mould

My daughter's preschool theme this year is "Under the Sea", so I thought the mermaid would be perfect.

This design is from the wilton wonder mold as well as many ideas from this web site!  The little girl wanted a mermaid and a dolphin for her birthday cake.  I made the little sea creatures in the water and the dolphin out of fondant and added chocolate seashells dusted with luster dust.

This is a cake I made for a 2 year old's birthday party.  She wanted an Ah-wah-all cake.  Use MMF for all the figures, and took the mermaid and octopus designs from Debbie Brown's book...  Everyone especially enjoyed the pieces with the graham cracker sand!!
