My youngest daughter turned 2 this week, and she requested a Nemo cake.
This cake had an 8-inch tier and a 6-inch tier. Each tier had four layers of strawberry cake with strawberry French buttercream. I frosted the outsides in chocolate ganache, and then covered them with homemade vanilla fondant, colored blue. I made the decorations out of modeling chocolate. I was very impressed with how well modeling chocolate took color. I was able to get very bright, vibrant colors with just tiny amounts of food coloring. Best of all, the decorations tasted delicious!
