Mermaid Cake!

I enjoy baking but I don’t love decorating cakes! I find it to be stressful even with the most simple decorations but I still like attempting to make them from time to time.

Mermaid Cake!

This cake was really pretty simple to make! I used a box cake mix, a simple frosting recipe and store bought Mermaid Decorations.



1 White Cake Mix + ingredients to make

1 or 2 batches of icing using this recipe & colored with food coloring.

(5 drops of blue food coloring and 3 drops of green)

1 package of Mermaid Decorations 


Prepare cake mix according to the package directions.

Separate batter in four, 6 inch cake pans- get them here from Pampered Chef

Bake for for 23-25 minutes until cake tester came out clean.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing.

Then cool completely completely before decorating.


I used 1 batch of frosting but wish I’d made 2.

I added 5 drops of blue food coloring and 3 drops of green to get the turquoise color used to decorate this cake.

I bought the Mermaid Decorations from Michaels
