Ariel themed tiered cake

We made this tiered cake with Ariel the Little Mermaid theme for the 5th birthday of a little girl. The 12″ and 8″ cake tiers are vanilla flavored with strawberry mousse filling and are covered with strawberry buttercream frosting. Ariel and Flounder are made with fondant and the rocks are molded with rice-crispies covered with fondant. The shells are made with chocolate, and the golden corals are made from caramelized sugar. The sand at the base of the cake is made of graham cracker crumbs.
