How To Make Mermaid Scales On A Cake?

The fondant scales really hide any buttercream icing mistakes so that’s another bonus of making this easy mermaid cake. I left the tail with just buttercream icing and tried to ice it to look like a tail. File this DIY project into “I can’t believe I actually made this mermaid cake by myself.

What tip do you use for mermaid scales?

A large round tip is best for piping the scales but I OFTEN use a piping bag with the tip cut off.

How many cupcakes does it take to make a mermaid tail?

There are 24 cupcakes in this mermaid tail cupcake cake template. A boxed cake mix will give you exactly 24 cupcakes, but feel free to make homemade cupcakes like funfetti or chocolate as well. What is this?

How do you make frosting for a cake?

Let cakes cool in pans for 10 minutes, then invert onto wire racks to cool completely. Make frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter and half of the powdered sugar until smooth. Add the remaining powdered sugar, vanilla and 4 tablespoons heavy cream and beat until fluffy. If the mixture is too stiff, add more heavy cream.

Decoration Notes

  • If you’re intimidated by the prospect of cake decorating, have a look at my How to Decorate a Cake post, which includes plenty of useful suggestions as well as a complete how-to video
  • The optimum tip for piping the scales is a large round tip, however I frequently use a piping bag with the tip chopped off for this purpose. Orient the bag so that the seams are on the side of the scale rather than in the line of sight
  • this will save time.
  • To create the two-tone look for the scales, fill one side of the piping bag with green buttercream and the other with blue buttercream, alternating between the two colors. Colors that are very similar should be combined for the greatest impact. Set aside a little amount of uncolored buttercream once you have mixed the blue and reserved approximately half of the mixture, which will be combined with yellow to make the green. You may use the conserved white to brighten any of the colored batches, or you can mix them together.
  • Instead of 6-inch pans, double the recipe for 8-inch pans or treble the amount for 9-inch pans
  • Make sure you measure your flour appropriately! Mistake number one: Using an excessive amount of flour in a baking recipe. Using a scale is the most accurate and convenient method of measuring flour. For those who don’t have a flour measuring cup, you may fluff your flour with a spoon and sprinkle it into your measuring cup, then level it with a knife.
  • If you notice little clumps of butter after mixing the wet ingredients, don’t be concerned
  • everything will come together by the time you combine the dry components. If you like, you may use melted butter and slightly reheat the milk and sour cream before serving.
  • If you want, you may use full milk yogurt for the sour cream
  • I do this all of the time and can’t tell the difference.
  • When the cake layers are finished baking, you will see that they are pulling away from the edge of the pan.
  • When melting the white chocolate, use a low heat setting. It is tasty, but it is also extremely difficult to burn. Once the chocolate is nearly completely melted, take it from the fire and set it aside for a few minutes before stirring it.

Mermaid Tail Cupcake Cake Template

  1. This mermaid tail cupcake cake pattern makes a total of 24 individual cupcakes.
  2. A boxed cake mix will provide exactly 24 cupcakes, but feel free to experiment with different flavors of handmade cupcakes, such as funfetti or chocolate.
  3. I used a double layered silver cupcake wrapper to make the wrappers for the cupcakes (to hide the brown chocolate cupcakes).
  4. Gold would also be a stunning choice.
  5. On a lighter cupcake, any color wrapper should be OK.

In order to accommodate my cupcake cake, I ordered a full-size sheet cake board and box from a grocery store bakery.To ensure that the cupcakes stay close together and do not move while being frosted, place double-sided tape on the bottom of the cupcake wrappers and use it to stick the cupcakes to the board.

How to Make a Mermaid Tail Pull Apart Cake

  1. Working your way up the mermaid tail cupcake cake will require you to start with the bottom fins and work your way up.
  2. (Be sure to check out my new favorite buttercream frosting recipe, which is included at the end of this video.) Pipe the fins with a Wilton 2D (big flower/star) tip that has been slightly expanded.
  3. Create a continuous line of pipe, beginning with the edges and working your way towards the center.
  4. Before piping each fin, make sure the frosting bag is completely full to avoid air bubbles and the need to lift the tip and start again.

How to Pipe the Mermaid Tail Scales

  1. For the mermaid tail scales, use three different colors of icing.
  2. Turn the board upside down so that the fins are at the top of the board.
  3. Fill a piping bag equipped with a Wilton 1A or bigger round tip with each color and pipe out the design.
  4. You’ll also need a tiny offset spatula and a clean, wet towel for cleaning the spatula between colors after each color is applied.
  5. Pipe colorful dots on top of the cupcakes in alternating patterns by pressing the frosting right onto the cupcake and raising the bag straight up.

Make an effort not to have the same two colors in close proximity.If there are any gaps between the cupcakes, you may need to pipe the icing extra thick.Using the tiny offset spatula, carefully push the tips of the dots down a little bit and then drag the spatula towards the unfrosted cupcakes until they are completely covered.

  1. The scales are created in this way.
  2. Excess frosting should be scraped into three tiny basins, one for each color.
  3. Between colors, wipe the spatula off with a moist towel to keep it clean.
  4. (This is the most time-consuming component of the process.) TRICK: Pull all of the similar colors together in a row, then wipe the spatula clean and repeat the process with a different color, then wipe the spatula clean and repeat the process with the last color.
  5. When I was finished with the mermaid tail cupcake cake, I added an edible v-shaped waistline to the top, which was inspired by this dessert I found on Pinterest.
  6. Once the scales are near to the top of the mermaid tail, you may use any of the three colors to pipe an outline for the waistline around the body of the mermaid.

I chose white since it was the color with the greatest amount of leftovers.Make a well in the center and fill it in with extra frosting, then smooth it out with the offset spatula.TIP: Using a slightly moist spatula to smooth out most bumps and lines can assist to minimize the appearance of lines and bumps.Chocolate pearls may be used to ornament the waistline, and random scales can be used to design the mermaid tail.

Voila!This mermaid tail cupcake cake is picture-perfect and ready to be served at your next event.If you want to store the cake, you may place the board on the bottom of a (disassembled) cardboard cake box and then build the box around the cake.


  • 1 box cake mix plus the components for making the cake (oil, water, eggs)
  • 1 box cake mix
  • Four 12-inch disposable piping bags
  • one Wilton 2D tip
  • three Wilton 1A tips
  • small offset spatula
  • clean, moist washcloth
  • There are three little basins for scraping the extra frosting
  • chocolate pearls are used for embellishing.

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

  • 2 cups (1 pound) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • I used turquoise and purple food coloring paste, but you may use any color you like.


  1. In order to make the cupcakes, start by mixing the ingredients and baking them in paper baking cups – I used double-lined silver baking cups to disguise some of the brown from the dark chocolate cake. Bake according to the directions on the package. (Cupcakes are normally baked for 19-23 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.) You make 24 cupcakes, be sure to divide the batter evenly.
  2. To make the frosting, use an electric mixer to cream together the butter and salt until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition before continuing. Continue until all of the powdered sugar has been used. Heavy cream should be added one Tablespoon at a time, then the speed should be increased to high and beat for approximately 30 seconds. Mix in the vanilla until it is well absorbed.
  3. Divide the frosting in half and tint half of it turquoise (or whatever color you like for the fins and some scales)
  4. Color one-fourth of the frosting purple (or any other color of your choice), and leave the remaining one-fourth of the frosting white (or any other color of your choice).
  5. Make use of four single-use piping bags. Half of the turquoise should be placed in one bag with a Wilton 2D tip. Using a piping bag fitted with a Wilton 1A or bigger round tip, pipe the turquoise, purple, and white frosting into three separate bags. As well as a tiny offset spatula, three small bowls, and a clean, damp towel for cleaning the spatula between colors, you will need the following supplies:
  6. Form a mermaid tail form out of cupcakes and glue them on a full-size sheet cake board with double-sided tape. (For a template, see the previous post.)
  7. For the fins, use a slightly expanded Wilton 2D tip to pipe the fins on the cake. Pour in a steady stream, beginning at the perimeter and working your way in toward the middle. TIP: Make sure the frosting bag is completely filled before piping each fin to avoid air bubbles and the need to lift the tip and start again.
  8. For the scales, the following is correct: Turn the board upside down so that the fins are at the top of the board. Pipe colorful dots on top of the cupcakes in alternating patterns by pressing the frosting right onto the cupcake and raising the bag straight up. Make an effort not to have the same two colors in close proximity. If there are any gaps between the cupcakes, you may need to pipe the icing extra thick.
  9. Using the tiny offset spatula, carefully push the tips of the dots down a little bit and then drag the spatula towards the unfrosted cupcakes until they are completely covered. The scales are created in this way. Excess frosting should be scraped into three tiny dishes, one for each hue of the rainbow. Between colors, wipe the spatula off with a moist towel to keep it clean. (This is the most time-consuming component of the process.) TRICK: Pull all of the similar colors together in a row, then wipe the spatula clean and repeat with a different color, then wipe the spatula clean and repeat with the last color
  10. The waistband: Once the scales have reached the top of the mermaid tail, you may use any of the three colors to pipe an outline of a V-shaped waistline around the mermaid tail. I chose white since it was the color with the greatest amount of leftovers. Make a well in the center and fill it in with extra frosting, then smooth it out with the offset spatula. TIP: Using a slightly damp spatula to smooth out most bumps and lines can assist to minimize their appearance.
  11. Chocolate pearls may be used to ornament the waistline, and random scales can be used to design the mermaid tail. Assemble the cake box by placing the cake board on the bottom of it and then wrapping the box around the cake with tape. Make sure to keep the Mermaid Tail Cupcake Cake in the cake box until you’re ready to serve it.

  1. *Most grocery store bakeries have a full-size sheet cake board and box, which you may use for this recipe.
  2. (I purchased mine at Walmart.) * If you want to make this frosting, I highly recommend using heavy cream rather than milk.
  3. It lightens the frosting and gives it a somewhat whipped texture, which makes it easier to spread and smooth out over the cupcakes.

More Mermaid Party Ideas

  1. For our mermaid invites, we utilized this FREE customisable Fantasy Fin mermaid invitation, which you can download and print yourself.
  2. It is simple to make changes to the information, font, and color scheme.
  3. After that, I saved the image and ordered prints in the same way that you would with a photograph.
  4. Pinterest provided the inspiration for our mermaid decorations, which we recreated.
  5. A fancy fish net and balloons were purchased from a party supply store.

With all of the wind that we were experiencing, getting out of bed was a real challenge.All we did was suspend the net from a piece of tape and nestle the balloons inside.I also purchased this adorable Mermaid Tail Banner from etsy, which I think is adorable.

  1. I purchased simple white gift bags from the dollar store to use as favor bags for the mermaid themed party.
  2. Afterwards, I printed out this FREE Mermaid Silhouette (which I created by generating a horizontal document with two figures on a single page) and adhered it to the front of the bags using hot glue.
  3. We purchased rainbow colored pens, flower stampers, micro bubbles, bracelets, and mermaid tail notebooks from either the dollar shop or a party supply store for this project..
  4. We filled little candy jars with Sixlets candy pearls in blue and purple colors, and we acquired some mini blue soda bottles at Winco Foods to use as ″sea water″ containers.
  5. Almost every one of the printables for the bottles and food tags came from Mommy of a Princess, and I was able to find them in the archives of her VIP Facebook Group.
  6. I edited and typed them using typefaces that I created myself.

For the majority of our meal, we had sub ″sandwiches″ as an alternative.Seafood (Swedish Fish), Seashells (Bugles), and a Paradise Fruit Salad were served as appetizers, with Coral (Crunchy Cheetos) as the main course (Strawberries, Blueberries, & Pineapple).Our beverage of choice was ″Ocean Water,″ which consisted only of blue Hawaiian Punch and Sprite.

Mermaid Party Water Games

  1. Water activities were a must-have for our mermaid-themed summer party.
  2. Despite the fact that none of them were mermaid-themed, it was a lot of fun to be wet on such a hot day.
  3. Here’s what we came up with: To begin, I placed these Mermaid Color Pages on the table along with crayons and colored pencils so that the girls would have something to do while waiting for the rest of the guests to arrive.
  4. After that, we engaged in some water games.
  5. RELAY OF SPONGES — Four little dollar store buckets, two large vehicle wash sponges, and two teams of people are needed.

There is one bucket of water at the head of each line to serve as a water source.The bucket at the end of each line is completely emptied.Team members form a line in front of a bucket of water to avoid being splashed.

  1. The first person in line from each squad takes the sponge and soaks up as much water as they can before passing it over their heads to the next person.
  2. The next person passes it below them, between their legs, then over, under, over under, and so on till it reaches the finish line.
  3. As the final person finishes up, they squeeze as much water out of the sponge as they can into the empty bucket before returning to their position at the front of the line to re-soak the sponge and begin the relay.
  4. When either team’s front bucket is completely depleted, the game is ended.
  5. The winning team is the one that has the most water in their rear bucket.
  6. This Sponge Toss Game may be played with the same equipment as the last one.

PASS THE WATER – This game is quite similar to the sponge relay in that it involves passing water from one player to another.It’s a two-team competition with four buckets and one plastic cup for each team member.The bucket at the front of the line is nearly empty.The bucket at the end of the line is completely devoid of contents.

Members of the team can either stand or sit.Water is scooped into a cup by the first person in line from each team, who then lifts the cup over their heads and attempts to spill it into the cup of the person behind them.To avoid being drenched, the person in the rear will strive to catch as much water as they can.Each person in the line repeats this procedure until they get to the finish, at which point the final person in line pours the water over their heads and into the empty bucket.As soon as the final person crosses the line, the relay begins all over again.

When either team’s front bucket is completely depleted, the game is ended.The winning team is the one that has the most water in their rear bucket.Idea courtesy of Girl with a Glue Gun.

  1. RACE WITH A WATER BALLOON SPOON — Teams of two, two huge wooden or plastic kitchen spoons (the longer the handle, the more difficult it will be), two full water balloons, two orange plastic cones, or anything to serve as a starting and ending point are all needed.
  2. On a big cooking spoon, one member of each team balances a water balloon on the end (not the middle) of a long stick, which is held in place with one hand.
  3. Once at the end point (around the cone), each team member sprints back to the beginning, passing the spoon to the next team member.
  4. If a balloon is dropped, the officiator or a member of each team should be prepared to replace it.

The team member has the option of starting anew from the beginning or starting from the place when the balloon popped, whichever is more convenient.(Develop the regulations prior to the commencement of the race.) After all team members have crossed the finish line, the winning team is determined by which team has the most balloons left over or which team has the least quantity of balloons dropped.THE WATER BALL CATCH REQUIRES: Two teams, water sponge balls (I purchased these at the dollar shop in packs of four small water balls — we used six packs, for a total of 24 balls), two buckets (one for each team), and a kiddie pool full of water Submerged in the pool of water are a number of water balls.Each team has a bucket and a designated catcher, both of whom are the same person.Upon hearing the count of three, members of each team rush to the other side of the pool and throw as many balls as they can to the catcher on the other side of the pool, which is only a few feet away from where they started.

  • The winning team is the one that has the greatest number of balls in their bucket.
  • This is a short and simple game.
  • Repeat this process for as many youngsters as you want to be able to be the catcher.
  • Here are some additional entertaining Water Activities that you may wish to incorporate into your party.

Mermaid Cake Tutorial

  1. Because a mermaid party would be incomplete without the most delicious mermaid cake, I’m providing you with a guide on how to make one today.
  2. Cake decoration is something I like doing.
  3. It has the ability to bring any topic together, in my opinion.
  4. If you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to have a look at my postings on the general theme and design, as well as the tablescape and food suggestions.
  5. It has evolved into a recreational activity that I can become entirely absorbed in while at work.

It’s one of those hobbies where I am so absorbed in it that I don’t even notice when meal times come and go – which is a miracle in my case.In the meanwhile, I hope you enjoyed my Cake Making 101 and Cake Making 201 postings, and that they have provided you with some inspiration for furthering your own cake designing abilities.A cake is only worth so much if it is visually appealing.

  1. The problem is that if it doesn’t taste nice, you’re in danger.
  2. For this reason, my no-fail White Velvet Cake recipe is combined with a delicious Buttercream Frosting that has the proper solidity and flavor.
  3. Once you’ve established a solid foundation, it’s time to add design components to the mix.
  4. My objective with this cake was to create a replica of the paper scale wall that I created for Abigail’s mermaid celebration.
  5. I put quite a lot of effort into recreating the paper in fondant form.
  6. Despite the fact that it required a little time and effort, I was quite pleased with the final product.

The idea of creating a glitter or sequin aesthetic was something I’d never done before.As I went along, I was making it up as I went.So, what exactly did I do?The initial step was to thoroughly combine all of the colors.

I placed paper samples next to my fondant so that I could continuously checking the colors while I worked on the fondant.I started with Wilton icing colors in gel form, which I found at a craft store.I started with the colors teal and sky blue and then added green, yellow, and blue as needed to achieve the desired effect.The colors shown above were the most straightforward.Because the paper was a single color, it was as simple as rolling them out, cutting the ovals out, and slicing the tips off with a pizza cutter to create the fondant fish scales for the fish.

Here are some illustrations of how to accomplish it, as well as the tools you’ll need: At Global Sugar Art, I was able to locate the exact cookie cutter I was looking for.This online store truly does have everything you could possibly need for your cake decorating adventures.I was certain that I would be able to produce the scales if I could just find the correct size and form for the oval.

  1. A set of oval cookie cutters with graduated shapes was available from Global Sugar Art, and it was the right solution.
  2. Cake decorating using cookie cutters has got to be the simplest method.
  3. I would just cut out the shape with an oval cookie cutter and then trim the edges with a pizza cutter.
  4. This piece of paper has a mint green base with a glittery finish on the top.

Not sure if you’re acquainted with the term ″rainbow edible disco dust,″ but that’s the substance I was successful in employing to get the desired effect on the paper.When working with disco dust or other metallic finishes on fondant, you should first add a small amount of lemon juice or Vodka and then mix the powder together to form a paste.Disco dust is sprinkled on and then painted on with lemon juice, which is a hybrid of both techniques.The final appearance was a close match to the original paper.The secret lies in the delectable rainbow disco dust.

  • Here are my three teal-colored sheets, along with the teal fondant that I made from scratch.
  • I used green and turquoise sprinkles, as well as a little amount of rainbow ″disco dust,″ to achieve the ″glitter″ effect.
  • I used a combination of blue and green sprinkles to achieve the right color combination.
  • When I was finished, I applied a small amount of water to each scale using a clean paintbrush.

I scattered the sprinkles on top and then dusted a little amount of rainbow disco dust on top of that.You can see the piece of paper on the right side that I was attempting to match in color.Even though it was perhaps the most difficult to match, the cake turned out beautifully with this design.Here’s another piece of paper from the teal collection.

  • Although it’s difficult to see, the paper has striations on it.
  • It’s even more difficult to discern in the photo, but I was able to transfer the texture of the paper to the fondant using a pastry bag.
  • I accomplished this by placing the paper face down on top of the fondant and rolling the fondant over it with a rolling pin until it was smooth.

Here’s an illustration of the procedure: The sequin turquoise hue of the final paper was the color I was hoping to mimic.I started with a turquoise fondant as a base.In order to complete the effect, I added blue pearl dust (which I applied with lemon juice or Vodka), turquoise sprinkles, and some rainbow disco dust.Abby made the decision to take a vacation from the lake in order to assist me with these.

I now had a massive table covered with ovals and fish scales.I used my pizza cutter to snip off the remainder of the tips as I went along, leaving me with simply fondant fish scales that were ready to be placed to the cake.Here’s a picture of the paper fish scale wall that I was attempting to replicate.

Once you have those scales built, the rest is simple.Abby assisted with a large portion of the assembly.All that is left is to add the fish scales, which should be staggered as depicted.I made an effort to ensure that related hues did not come into contact.

Just keep working your way up from the ground up.The fact that the scales were of varying lengths, as you can see in the photo above, didn’t bother me because the tops would be covered.You can see, though, that I was a little more precise when it came to aligning the scales on the top layer.As a result, you’ll have a mermaid cake with scales on the tail that looks just like one.

  5. For Elise’s 9th birthday celebration, I had initially planned to design multiple mermaid cake ideas; however, this mermaid cake with a number-plus-tail was my first concept, and I fell in love with it so much that I stopped after the first sketch.

Having baked Elise a number 7 Magic Tree House birthday cake the previous two years, and a number 8 LEGO Friends birthday cake the year before that, it appears that I’m a bit obsessed with coming up with inventive number cake ideas.A buttercream frosting was used to decorate this basic mermaid cake, which was then covered with fondant scales.Another advantage of preparing this simple mermaid cake is that the fondant scales help to cover any buttercream icing mishaps, which is an added plus.

  2. This bakery cake recipe is the most delicious of any that I’ve ever prepared.

  4. The round cakes are best baked a week ahead of time, wrapped and frozen according to Mary’s directions, and then decorated right before serving.

Step 2: Make fondant mermaid scales

  1. First, tint your fondant using gel food coloring to give it a vibrant appearance.
  2. Check out my taffy-pull method for coloring fondant to see how simple it is.
  3. The specifics may be found approximately halfway down this page; search for the fondant taffy shot for more information on the recipe.
  4. For my fondant mermaid scales, I used four different colours of coral and pink.
  5. You are now ready to begin creating fondant mermaid scales.

I looked up how to make fondant scales on the internet and found a plethora of tutorials, the best of which was this one.Here are a few pointers to keep in mind: First and first, your surface must be immaculately clean since fondant will take up anything and everything.Before I begin, I pull my hair back and use a clothing lint roller to remove any lint from my clothes and apron.

  1. And, of course, perfectly clean hands.
  2. Using painter’s tape, secure a piece of freezer paper to the surface of your table.
  3. Once your fondant is rolled, it is time to decorate.
  4. I enjoy this fondant rolling pin since it has rubber bands on it that assist you in creating a consistent thickness of fondant.
  5. Then, using this 1′′ circle cutter, cut out circles of fondant that are 1 inch in diameter.
  6. Making fondant scales with the backside of a clean knife and placing them on a baking sheet coated with freezer paper is simple and fun!

Step 3: Assemble mermaid cake into the number 9 with mermaid tail

  1. Make use of my free mermaid cake number 9 template (PDF), which you can print and tape together before placing on top of the cake.
  2. First, using a serrated knife, cut out the circle of the number 9 cake on a wooden cutting board.

  4. Begin from the end of the mermaid tail and work your way up to the middle of the tail.
  5. Keep the leftover cake pieces for yourself or put them back in the freezer to use for cake pops at a later time for the next celebration.

Assemble the cake parts onto a cake board by gluing them together.Aside from that, I created my own cake board and carrying box…In the meantime, if you’re interested in learning how I constructed my own cake board and carrying box, please leave a remark below.

Step 4: Ice mermaid cake with buttercream icing and add fondant mermaid scales

  1. The Cakegirls’ bakery buttercream frosting recipe is a must-try; this icing recipe goes especially nicely with their vanilla cake recipe.
  2. Use gel food coloring to give it a coral hue (I have this set of 12 gel icing colors).
  3. Icing the mermaid cake is optional because it will be covered up, therefore it does not need to be flawless.
  4. Before moving on to the next stage, remove any excess buttercream frosting from the cake board.
  5. Beginning at the bottom of the mermaid tail, start adding fondant scales.

Colors should be alternated and overlapped a little.My daughter and I worked on these steps at night while the kids were watching The Descendants for movie night, which is why these mermaid cake photographs are a little dark.Just so you know, I created way too many scales and ended up with a ton of leftovers.

  3. Notice how the rows are starting to resemble scales?
  4. This is a good thing.
  5. Yay!
  6. This is the point at which I realized that this cake was truly going to turn out exactly the way I had envisioned it would.

Whew.When the movie was paused, the kids came over to see how the mermaid cake was coming along.They were impressed.There’s a very happy birthday girl in the house now!

In our household, there was a little bit of dispute regarding whether or not I should include the white circle in the centre of the number 9 or leave it out entirely.After much deliberation, I decided to go with my intuition and add the white circle, which I think helps to identify the number 9 cake even more.Curious as to what you think – do you prefer a white or a black circle?

Step 5: Make white chocolate shells and starfish, plus edible ‘sand’

  1. I purchased the Cakegirls shell and starfish chocolate molds, then I filled them with white chocolate to make them seem like seashells.
  2. For complete directions, please see the Cakegirls starfish cake tutorial.
