Grab your dinglehopper and get ready to dive in! We’ve found some of the best mermaid cake masterpieces on this side of the shore. If you’re hosting an underwater bash for your little one, these mermaid cakes will have you splashing around the kitchen in no time! (via Maria V Creative)
1. Sand, sea and shore
With the colour of the ocean covered, this ombre cake comes to life with precious purple features. Elements from under the sea like scattered shells and starfish create the base of the cake, while beautiful pearls shimmer in the daylight. We love the different textures created on each tier too!

2. Tall tail
Again, a simple colour scheme makes this mermaid tail cake so pretty! Covered with ice white fondant, each tier is stunningly crafted with a wrapping mermaid’s tail. And who doesn’t love a splash of gold on their cake! (via Huffington Post)
3. Sandcastle sweet
It doesn’t get much better than an edible sandcastle! This awesome cake kingdom was built using layers of sponge ‘walls’ which were coated with frosting before being covered in ‘sand’ of the sea (graham crackers and toasted coconut). The starfish and shells are edible too! Get the tutorial here. (via Living Well Spending Less)
4. Ombre delight
They say that beauty is in the details, and we can’t get enough of the detailing on this ombre tail cake. The overlapping scale technique may look tricky, but we’ve found a great tutorial from Meaningful Mama to show you just how it’s done. (via Hostess with the Mostess)
5. The whole gang
Ariel and Sebastian join forces once again for this spectacular colourful creation! Lots of pastels, tiny details, and heaps of fun make this mermaid cake the top of our picks!

6. Tail in a spin
The tail of a mermaid often does all the hard work – that’s why we’re loving this mermaid tail cake! Put a spin on the traditional mermaid cake by turning it on its tail. These guys went the full shebang. Brilliant! (via Catch my Party)
