These were my niece’s favorites and are a rare departure from the other designs that are focused on the mermaid tail.  Still, I think these aquatic themed designs would go with any mermaid themed party.

I guess this only really works if your little one is turning five, however I if you play around with the tail and colors you can make this work for other numbers as well.  I just thought the number five was the cutest.

This may seem complicated at first, but if you break down the shape into the individual cupcakes it’s not really a massive task.  A good tip would be to use light cupcakes for the face instead of using an entire cake – just to cut down on the work needed for this.
