A WHALE OF A CAKE! – My cute little blue whale cake tutorial | Sweetwater Cakes

I had a “whale of a good time” making this “whale of a cake!” Okay, enough of the whale jokes… Seriously, this cake is easy and cute to make. It would be perfect for a birthday party, baby shower, or other celebration.

This cake reminds me of the song « Baby Beluga! » I loved singing that song when I was a kiddo.

Start by frosting the cake with a crumb coat and then a final coat (or whatever your frosting method may be). Then make the little whale fins, belly and spout with a 50/50 fondant gum paste blend. Add a face with buttercream, and then top the cake with your fondant/gum paste pieces. And it’s done! I know that your cake will be just as cute as mine. 

I had so much fun creating this cute whale cake. Thanks for watching!  Subscribe for more sweet free tutorials and cake TV!
