Adorable Ariel Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was my first cake from Wilton. I found difficulty in making Ariel's facial features look like her. My advice for someone making the cake for the first time is to make sure pan is covered with non-stick cooking spray so that Ariel's facial features from the pan are pronounced on the cake once it is baked. Some parts of my pan were not greased which casued the face and hair lines to be somewhat ambiguous, and because I am not an artist, I could reproduce Ariel's cute look. I'm going to try again, this time covering the pan with cooking spray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this pan I made this cake for my daughter's 4th birthday.I was a little nervous about how it would turn out since it was for her party and not much time for failure! It turned out fabulous! The key is definitely to ensure the pan is well greased. I used a vegetable cooking spray and coated the pan very well. The eyes were probably the trickiest part for me. All in all it was great and my daughter loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy cake to make. Only took about 1.5 hours to decorate (icing part) then attaching all the decorations on the sides - about 30 minutes. It's truly beautiful and quite impressive. My daughter cried when we cut it.. it was done for her 2nd birthday. She's 3 and demanded another Ariel cake for her 3rd birthday. Just remember to decorate the cake the after you bake it.. it's truly the easiest way to ensure your cake has sufficiently cooled and the icing won't melt :P

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my son's girlfriend who loves Disney and especially Ariel. She was thrilled. It had been a few years since I decorated a cake, but it all came back with ease using the character pan, but I opted for a more simple decoration with the sides being plain. I enjoy the character pans because they are always fast and easy and people are always thrilled with the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was somewhat amazed at how easy these character cakes are to do and how great they look when finished. I have probably done about a dozen different character cakes (Mostly Birthday cakes for Grand children).They are always a hit. They can be time consuming but they are not difficult. Wilton will often offer a few ideas on how to decorate them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was very surprised at how beautiful this cake turned out. Since I am not very experienced though - I could not copy the eye details. I tried several times and finally just made large circles for the eyes with long eyelashes. My granddaughter still loved it! I made the cake from scratch using a pound cake recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter is all about Ariel lately and I made this for her 3rd birthday. She was in heaven! It came out great! The longest part was making all the colors and setting up to decorate, and it was pretty smooth sailing after that. Pan was easy to use.
