We had a nautical themed birthday for Sean and his birthday twin Joia. (They were born 5 hours apart in the same hospital with the same doctor.)
I was excited about the frosting, because I finally got a chance to try out the ombre effect I had been seeing on my favorite cake blogs!
The mermaid is a Monster High doll and the seaweed is made from sugar glass. I made the shells out of white chocolate. The pops are marshmallows covered in white chocolate, dipped in graham cracker crumbs, with a goldfish crackers as a decoration.

The inside of the cake was reverse ombre in sea green.

and stuck a fish to them.
