Our Mermaid Cake Kit, Three Ways

One of the best parts about cake decorating is putting your own unique stamp on the final design. Here are our 3 favorite ways to decorate our mermaid cake kit. Bonus! All of these techniques can be applied to any of our cake kits that have come with food coloring.

Ombre-Effect 

We love making shades of colors and blending them together. To do this, hydrate your food coloring with 1/2 teaspoon water. Add 1/2 cup frosting to make the darkest color. From that add a small amount to a new bowl with 1/2 cup white frosting to make a paler shade. You can repeat this for a third layer, or just use the remaining white frosting. See how we did this in a video here. 

Smooth and Clean

Nothing says professional like smooth, clean edges. To do this it helps to have a straight-sided bench scraper. Hold the scraper perpendicular to the cake 

Swirls and Swoops

For this look, pile on the frosting and use your spatular or mini offset to make "C"-shapes in all different directions. This also looks great when you add a secondary color to the mix!
