Little Alex requested that her birthday cupcakes have the best Disney princess of all time..... Ariel! This was her FOURTH year in a row she wanted an Ariel birthday cake theme, so I knew I had to do something different.
I wanted the buttercream to have the look of water, so I used buttercream in three different colors, put them all in the same piping bag, and piped as usual. The result was a marbled buttercream and a lot of dimension. The sea life was made with cherry twizzlers and gum paste which I dyed, cut (with gumpaste flower cutters) and stamped. In the end, the assembly of these cupcakes was very easy, and the project was SO fun!
