Pika's Underwater 1st Birthday Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 11:27 AM
Sarah wanted a show-stopping cake for Pika's first birthday party. They rented out a huge event hall and had the place decorated so beautifully for the party! You can see some of the underwater decorations behind the cake. For this cake, I covered the bottom 3 tiers in marshmallow fondant and left the top tier all buttercream so that Pika could get all messy with his smash cake. I then used edible food coloring and watered it down so it was more like water color painting. I painted the color variation onto the cake and then added all of the marshmallow fondant underwater details. I made all of them in advance so that they would dry in shape and then adhered them to the cake with water or buttercream. Sarah had a little toy Pikachu that we put on the cake as well because that's her little boy's nickname. How cute is that! We agreed to keep that Pikachu and put it on every cake from here on out :)

Two of the tiers were Banana Cream Pie and 2 tiers were Chunky Monkey cake (check out my website for more detail on the flavors, www.SaltCakeCity.com)
