The bottom layer looks like colorful mermaid scales; the second layer鈥檚 covered in rainbow sprinkles and bubbles; the top layer鈥檚 decorated with sea plants made from icing; and the whole thing is crowned with a sparkly plastic mermaid tail to add an extra splash of celebration. If you won鈥檛 think you鈥檒l make it through that much delicious pastry at your party, Sam鈥檚 Club also sells a two-layer version that serves 46 people and costs $37.
