Itching to work on a creative collaboration myself - I turned to my sister Nel, who I've wanted to appear on Mermaidens for ages but never been able to talk her into appearing on my blog until now! When thinking about what it would look like if we were to bend the rules like they did in the video, the first thing we thought of was taking on a baking project that would intimidate us! We grew up loving mermaids and sea-life as children, so doing an elaborate aquatic cake was the kind of thing we would have loved to do when we were young.
We baked two confetti cakes, stacked them, and frosted with a sea-foamy blue-green to represent the ocean. I then used my HP x360 laptop as a tablet to scour Pinterest for inspiration - we were immediately taken by pearlescent accents like seashells and candies. Putting the cake together, I got more and more excited and our ideas became more elaborate - like arranging strawberry Pocky to suggest coral reefs!
The cake turned out much better than we thought and much closer to our original vision than any other previous baking attempts! My sister and I really play off each other well, and we both loved the end result! It even tasted amazing…! <3 What was your biggest baking project?
