For Catherine's cake I made an 8" inch two layer chocolate cake with salted caramel filling. Decorated with a Little Mermaid theme.
I used Wilton's Sea Life Fondant and Gumpaste mold to make the decorations around the cake. You definitely need to use a bit of oil or non-stick spray on the mold otherwise you will get very angry and waste a lot time trying to get the fondant out of the mold. When used it's amazing how much more pleasant it can be. It's still time consuming but well worth the effort.
Normally I use FondX fondant but I couldn't get out to Flour Confections this week to get a new tub. Instead, I went out to the Bulk Barn and bought Virgin Ice fondant. It is really easy to work with but it cracks so easily when you're covering a cake. It's really annoying. I mixed the white with some different shades of blue that I had on hand already but didn't mix all the way through to get the water effect.
Mr. T delivered the cake for me. He was able to take a side trip to get a Slurpee from 7-11 which made him happy. He also got a tip from Catherine's grandpa. Mr. T thought that was awesome to get a tip for the first time as my delivery boy. :)
