    Hi, I'm Yolanda! Some people call me the Beyoncé of cakes. I post my drool-worthy, jaw-dropping caking creations every Tuesday at 11am EST! My novelty cakes come in all shapes and sizes - giant versions of foods, gross stuff like brains, movie characters and some of my favorite things! Basically, I love to build stuff out of cake, buttercream, fondant, candy, cookies and anything sweet!
    To make this Mermaid Cake, I baked 18lbs of my Ultimate Vanilla Cake dyed soft pink and soft blue, in 8 pans. They were stacked in alternating colored layers with my Italian meringue buttercream, and carved into its rounded shape. The scales and tail are made from fondant, which I custom mixed into these colors. It’s all brushed over with Roxy and Rich luster dust for a shimmery finish! See the full recipe here:

    How long did it take to make this cake?

  • Greg Putnam
    Greg Putnam 5 months ago

    I wonder it takes you to create some of your cakes. This one, for example, included drying time but also the time to individually place each scale, create the fins for the tail, and dust on the sparkle dust to each scale. Plus assembly probably would make this cake take a chunk of time

    Arguing about it being merfolk or merpeople is pointless because it’s a mythical creature. You can call it human tuna if you wanted.

    This is cool and all, BUT WHO EATS ALL OF THIS CAKE?!?!? Think about it, she makes a video at least once a week, and these cakes are huge. So, all week you are eating cake. And guess what, next week another cake. Imagine coming home after a hard day if work and all you want to come home to is a hot, delicious home cooked meal. You ask "honey, what's for dinner?" And your wife has the nerve to say "were having a Giant Lasagna Cake!" No shade like these cakes are cool but I just had to ask.
