My daughter’s birthday was last month, and she insisted on a dolphin cake. Well, actually she first wanted a camping themed birthday party and then switched at the last minute to a dolphin. Do your kids do that to you too, or just mine? I had really cool camping party planned that I had to scrap and change to a dolphin party. Sigh.
Anyhow, I always make my kids cakes. It’s kind of a tradition around here. Remember the screwdriver cake? I immediately started browsing Pinterest for dolphin cakes. Most of them looked so complicated; I was feeling overwhelmed. Was I really going to have to learn how to mold fondant this year? Please, no!
But, alas, buried in Pinterest, I finally happened upon a link to this awesome dolphin cake template! Seriously, a life saver. And, I think it turned out beautifully. I really didn’t know what to think when I cut out all those weird shapes on the template, but it really did work. I used chose turquoise coloring for the dolphin (my daughter’s fave) and an m&m eye. Everyone loved it. I got tons of compliments from parents and my daughter’s friends.
