Mermaid Castle Birthday Cake

A mermaid castle cake for Rosie’s 6th birthday.  Bottom tier is chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling, middle tier is vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and raspberry filling, top tier and towers are dummies.  Hand-painted mermaid.  The shells were made by my 7-year-old son using the plastic insert from a box of chocolates.  This cake very nearly didn’t come off, as I was delayed by a migraine and then by my older daughter breaking her finger and having to have trips to hospital to sort it out.  But it was worth it to know that Rosie had the cake she’d envisioned.
