Under the Sea Cake Design / Jellyfish Day
Here is a cute Under the Sea Cake Design that I made inspired by Jellyfish Day! You can use some of these ideas and add other animals like fish or an octopus for a marine theme any day, but I only did Jellyfish because Nov. 3 is World Jellyfish Day!
Note: I am actually aware that jellyfish do NOT have eyes, but they look cuter with them. Haha! :)
Jellyfish are hauntingly beautiful and have an ethereal quality eventhough they are underwater. :)
What I used:
- Marshamallow fondant (I made; link)
- Vanilla frosting
- Blue food coloring
- Brown sugar (sand / ocean floor)
- Chunks of crushed jolly rancher (Coral)
- Candy eyes (not anatomically correct, but cute! Haha! :)
I made a jelly fish out of fondant.
This is a 9" round cake I made. You could use a different size cake or a cookie cake.
I mixed a tiny bit of blue food coloring to vanilla frosting to make a light blue under the sea color.
I use light brown sugar for sand or ocean floor.
Then I used some Jolly Ranchers of different colors that I crushed with a hammer.
