A Pool Party Cake
My baby boy turned five a couple of weeks ago. His request was to have a pool party this year. In planning for his cake, my little guy and I searched through images of "pool party cakes" on "Pinterest". We found one that gave us inspiration, click here. Our inspiration cake had a swimmer with dark brown hair which I had to make blonde to match my little guy. I made the face and fins for the cake with "fondant". I just did my best to copy the design of my inspiration cake.
The rest of the cake is just a store bought mix and "Aqua Blue" frosting. The frosting came with the "fish-fetti" sprinkles. I added some candy pearls to simulate air bubbles and then surrounded the main cake with some mini-cupcakes adorned with gummy sharks and life savers (easy peasy).
Here is a recap of past cakes made for my baby boy.
I wonder what he will want for his cake next year? Likes and dislikes change so quickly around here it is anyone's guess.
