Please don't kill me Jennifer!!!
For those of you whom I did NOT make this cake for, it was supposed to be a mermaid themed cake. I was only to provide the setting, as Ariel will be added on top in plastic form for the party.
When I was done with the basic ocean look, I decided it needed a little something to make it special. Don't ask why I thought of an octopus. Maybe it was that ball of purple fondant I had sitting there going to waste. Once I got the idea, I just couldn't let it go. I didn't WANT to do it ... I HAD TO DO IT!!!
