Mermaid Cake

This adorable cake was created for my niece's birthday.  She asked for a mermaid cake and many ideas ran through my head.  I wanted to do something different, something cute and whimsical.  This is what I came up with.  Using the cake as the base for a mermaid swimming through it was perfect.  Making it happen was a bit of a challenge.

I started with fondant and created the mermaid face and arms.  Then, I made all of the fun plants to  surround the cake.  The flowers are candy that I found in the cake decorating aisle at a local hobby store.  The tail was the biggest obstacle, but came out great.  I created the tail by wrapping fondant around a mini red solo cup (the shot glass size).  The fins were attached with toothpicks.  Doesn't this cake just make you smile?!?!
