13 adorable mermaid cakes to attempt for the next birthday party

Trine Jensen-Burke

There is no denying that apart from maybe unicorns, mermaids are by far the hottest mythical creature going at the moment.

And if you are in possession of your very own sea creature lover, why not give them the birthday bash of their wildest dreams, and throw a full-on mermaid -themed party?

Your first stop is, of course, the cake. Start there, and let the theme carry on to your other decor and details – and you will be sure to win mum-of-the-year; at least in the eyes of your little mermaid lover.

Luckily; Instagram is rife with inspiration, and we have rounded up 13 of the most amaze–SEA–ing mermaid cakes going for you:

Close up pic of the decadent 2 tier strawberry flavoured ‘Enchanted Underwater’ theme cake from @sapphiretouch and the beautiful #mermaid topper from @polliepapeterie. Love the taste of the cake- not too sweet and there’s that tinge of strawberry taste. So yummy! @sapphiretouch paid alot of attention to the design of the cake I wanted and she even went the extra mile to buy seashells and starfishes mold because she didn’t have it. Got to give it to her! ?? She also drew up a sketch of the entire cake and she did samples of the fondant seashell and starfish to show me how the finished product look like. She takes her work very seriously and making sure I was happy with the design. ??????? For the topper from @polliepapeterie, I showed them roughly what I wanted and they did 2 sketches for me to choose. Effort!! The topper is glittery in real life and it’s so pretty. It’s my second time working together with them. Previously they did the intricate wedding logo topper for my anniversary cake last year. You can tell when someone has deep passion in their work when you communicate with them. I’m glad to say both of them have so much to offer and they’re talented in their own ways. Communication was a breeze as well. I’m saying this not because this is sponsored, but they are my heartfelt words. Thank you both! Do follow them on their instagram to check out their works. #sharonsbirthdayparty #mermaidcake #mermaidtheme #sapphiretouch #polliepapeterie #sp #sofitelsentosa
