Adventures in cake, Snow White

Cake originally made for the Princess in May 2009.

By age four, my daughter's obesession with the Disney Princesses continued stroungly.  She asked for a Snow White cake since she was missing from her third birthday cake.  She gave me the doll she wanted on top of the cake so I started throwing out ideas at her.  She settled on a cake that looked a little like Snow Whites dress.

I made two eight inch layers and two six inch layers.  The smaller layers were iced in a dark blue and the larger layers were iced yellow.  The red was a store bought Wilton tube, so much easier than trying to make red.  I just used a round tip to make the stripes on the side and a small star tip to make the red border on the top by just doing small rosettes.  The border in blue was made using a slightly larger star tip and the same rosettes.  The bottom ruffle was made using a large Wilton #125 tip.





The Snow White and Dopey were just set on top.





I thought these cute little swirly candles in red and yellow would look perfect on the cake.





Ultimately I was disappointed with how this cake turned out.  I just didn't put the time into it that it really needed.

Any questions about what I did please just ask.

  5. You did a great job!

    It seems like the Snow White story is really popular right now. Theres a lot of new Snow White movies and TV shows coming out. My favorite Princess is Belle, but I do love the show "Once Upon a Time" which stars Snow. Maybe I'll make myself a Snow White B-day cake.
