Mermaid Cake

My daughters birthday theme was mermaids! So I had to make a mermaid cake! When the pressure is on to decorate a cake I love the convenience of Duncan Hines cake mixes and icing tubs!


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Prepare cake mixes as directed in 4 round cake pans or bowls, each getting smaller in diameter
  3. While cake is baking, use food colouring to get your icing the perfect ocean shade.
  4. Once baked and cooled, stack and cut a circle from the center big enough to fit Barbie...she should stick out from the waist up.
  5. Unstack and ice the top of each layer
  6. Restack and ice all over
  7. Use m&ms and leaf gummies to make the fin shape and decorate with seashells and graham wafer sand
