Little Mermaid Birthday Cake

To make this Little Mermaid birthday cake, I prepared and lined a 12x16x3 inch pan and an 8 inch round pan.

5cups sifted cake flour
2cups white sugar
2tbsp.baking powder
1/2 tsp.salt and pinch of baking soda
1 cup oil
1 tbsp.vanilla
1/4 cup evaporated milk
14 egg yolks,and 14 egg whites
2 cups white sugar
1 tsp. cream of tartar

Procedure: mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, pinch of baking soda in a bowl, then add oil, vanilla, egg yolk , milk and 1 cup water, mix in mixer at speed 3 with a flat beater for 30 seconds. In a separate bowl mix egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff.

Then gradually add 2 cups sugar. Beat at high speed for 1 minute after adding the sugar. Then cut and fold the egg yolk mixture with the egg white until well incorporated. Pour into prepared pan, and baked at 250 degrees centigrade oven for 45 minutes or until when the toothpick inserted comes out clean.

For the design of Little Mermaid, I have here 3 figurines. I made a seaweed out of wire which I covered with foil.

When the cake is done and cooled, I prepared boiled icing. Here is the recipe for the boiled icing:

1 cup eggwhite,
3 cups sugar,
cream of tartar and
1 cup water.

Put sugar, water and cream of tartar in a sauce pan then boil into running boil. Then beat the egg whites until stiff then pour the boiling sugar gradually then beat until stiff.

I put the cake on the cake board size, 14x18, I smooth boiled icing on it , when the icing is very smooth, I put the 8 inch round on top and smooth in boiled icing again until very smooth.

I put the prepared foil and I piped in icing on it to make it look like a seaweed. I put some icing on both sides of cake to make it look like a wave
and I sprayed orange color airbrush food color on the seaweeds and blue all over the cake to make it look like underwater theme. I put plastic leaves and sugar flowers and I piped small circles for the bubble effect. Then lastly, I put Ariel on top and Flounder and Sebastian on the first layer, then the name of the celebrant.
