Ingredients for 6 people

10 blue airheads

10 green airheads

10 white airheads

6 egg

2 3/4 cups of water

1 cup of vegetable oil

2 containers of vanilla frosting

Blue food coloring

Edible gold glitter

1 cup of sugar

0.3 cup of corn syrup


Non-stick cooking spray

2 boxes of vanilla cake mix




Piping bag


Step 1/4

Spray 4, 8'' cake pans with non-stick spray. In a large bowl add eggs, 2 1/2 cups of water, vegetable oil and 2 boxes of vanilla cake mix. Whisk until smooth. Divide batter evenly into 4 cake pans and bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. Fill a piping bag with the vanilla frosting and assemble the cake by putting a thin layer of frosting between each layer. Coat the entire cake and place 10 minutes in the fridge. Prepare 3 separate bowls of vanilla icing dyed blue. You will need a dark, medium and light blue. Remove cake from the fridge and frost the cake creating a gradient ombre effect.

Step 2/4

Blow the balloons (not to big). Attach to skewers. In a pot heat ¼ cup water, sugar, corn syrup and blue food coloring. Allow to boil and reach 300°F. Allow to cool to 250°F. Dip balloons in the hot sugar syrup. Once cooled, pop the balloons and set aside.

Step 3/4

With a parchment lined sheet pan, line up 6 green and blue airheads, alternating between colors. Using a hair dryer, fuse together. Press a cooling rack into the airheads to create scales. Remove cooling rack and allow the airheads to cool. Cut out a mermaid tail shape (about 6-8 inches long). Use the white airheads to sculpt 3 seahorses. Brush with edible gold glitter.

Step 4/4

Add the sprinkles to the cake. Take small strips of green airheads, twist and stick in groups of 3 at the base of the cake. This is the seaweed. Add the seahorses and sugar bubbles. Stick the mermaid tail in the center (top) of the cake. Serve and enjoy!
