Here are a couple of cakes I've made recently.

The first is a cake I made for my littlest one's 3rd birthday. He absolutely LOVES tools so that was the theme for this cake.

This second cake was an order for a little girls 3rd birthday. The Little Mermaid figures were provided by the client, and the rest of the decorating is buttercream with fondant accents.

C&C very welcome!

The first one is fab but WOW, I got a bit over excited when I saw the little mermaid one! That's fantastic. Must have taken ages. Lucky, lucky kids Smiley

Great job on them.  The tools look fantastic and I love how you did the sea.

Sometimes you get to change the world, and other times the world changes you.

Currently drowning in the sea called PhD.

Interested in swapping for I-Spy Quilt Squares and Scraps.

how cute! the little mermaid one makes me want to make one like it for my niece, i love the technique you used for the water effect (forget what that style's called) what a great way to turn simple techniques into a more complicated looking cake.

and i absolutely love the tool one, you did such a great job on the piece of wood on top and i just love the measuring tape on the bottom

Those cakes look wonderful!
I bet the kids loved them.
I too thought the 'sawdust' was a perfect detail.

Thanks everyone! Both kids loved their cakes, so a success on both counts.
The waves are a technique called "petal frosting" which is easy but time consuming. I pulled a bit of icing and tinted it dark dark blue and just kept adding more and more light icing to it as I progressed up the cake to give it that watery colour change. Turned out good I think!

The funniest thing about the tool cake is that when it was cut all the boys at the party wanted a piece with the sawblade or a nail in it! I was like, it's just fondant! With dried spaghetti in it! But they wanted it anyways. Kids! Tongue
