My son is having a Spngebob second birthday and i am having trouble with the cake. My sister is making an amazing cake that will have three teirs, colored blue, decorated with flowers, seaweed, and I am trying to find the characters to place on each teir. If any one knows where to find mini characters, I have the Spongebob (it came with one of his toys) but dk where to find the others seperately from toys. The problem Im having is I have to help her make extra decor. to put on it. I'd like it to edible but its no big deal if I cant do that. I want to make alot of starfish, coral, a jelly fish (to sit flat on the cake, like a sticker lol) And I am not sure realy what products there are that are cheap and save to sit on the cake if it is non edible. If I have to I can draw with icing the jellyfish, but the coral and starfish I want the actual thing all over it. The coral I thought of making them out of dough, but I know that would be too heavy, it wouldnt hold on the second or top teir. Does anyone know of any ideas that I can make them out of that will be safe, and do you think that food coloring would be easy way to color them, I am not experienced at this lol and not sure if the food color will bring the amount of color I need. Any advice would be great! Thanks in advance!
