Little Mermaid Birthday Cake

A question on the Cricut messageboard reminded me of the cake I made for my granddaughter's seventh birthday.  As with everything in my life, I got lazy and took waaaaay too many shortcuts.  But luckily, seven-year-olds aren't that discerning. 

I cut the shapes from the Cricut Disney's Princesses Dreams Come True cartridge, laminated them with my Xyron to keep them from being a sticky, soggy mess, and attached them to bamboo skewers that I stuck into the cake.  I tried to color the frosting to look like water, then swirled it onto the cake to look like waves (in my mind, at least). 

I also used both the Hello Kitty Greetings and Font cartridges for the Happy Birthday sign.
