Little Mermaid

I loved making this cake. As soon as I started my research I knew it would be fab. Researching this cake was great fun. So many great colours and details. The Ariel doll was supplied by the customer.

Disney Tangled birthday cake

‘Can you make Maisy-Jane a Tangled cake…..’ ‘A what?’ says me. Not being fully up to date on my Disney films I had no idea what my friend was talking about.
