Cake originally made for the Princess in May 2008.
My oldest daughter was turning three and she was obsessed with the Disney Princesses. I decided to make her a cake fit for a princess. This was my first attempt in making a taller stacked cake.
I started with baking and icing a three layers at 10 inches, 8 inches and 6 inches. I iced the entire cake in basic white, or the white that I got without adding anything to my buttercream recipe. I applied cornelli lace to the bottom layer, flowers on the middle and just a bit of string work and flower accents on the top. Here is a shot of the cake as I had it finished the night before the party.
Although I knew you were supposed to support taller cakes from within, I took a chance on this one and didn't do anything to it.
Here it is with the three Princesses she chose for the top of the cake. I just went with the small toys from Walmart and was also able to count those as part of her presents. I was not big on putting toys directly on a cake even after I washed them so these have a very this piece of plastic wrap between them and the cake.
My daughter was thrilled with how it turned out and she told me she felt like a princess.
Here it is set out for the party.
And here is a close shot with the candles.
If you have any questions on how I did anything, just ask!
