Cake originally made for Boo in Jan 2011.
When Boo turned four she asked me for a Tinkerbell cake. We sat down at the computer and I pulled up all kinds of cakes for her to look at. That was my first mistake, she liked every cake she saw. Finally she turned around and told me she wanted a big cake with Fairies and flowers. Big cakes I can do.
I am not artistic enough to make my own Tinkerbell out of fondant so I knew I would be using the little miniature toys for the cake. On top of that, Boo suggested I use all of the Fairies but make Tinkerbell special.
I started with my eight inch and six inch round pans. I made two layers of each, all iced in a pale leaf green. I offset the six inch layers to line up the cake along the back. That gave me a larger ledge at the front . I just made a regular shell border at the bottom and middle with a Wilton star tip (I can't remember which one exactly but one of the larger ones). I tinted what was left of the light green icing a bit darker to make vines along the cake with a Wilton #5 tip. I just made drop flowers for the top of the cake, and spread them around the borders of the cake also. I added a few leaves with a Wilton leaf tip.
Here is how the cake turned out.
Tinkerbell sits on top in her special spot while the other Fairies sit on the ledge I created.
I only had enough time to grab a quick shot of the cake before the party. The floral lights on the table were a Walmart after Christmas clearance item. They were battery operated and changed colors when they were lit. It really did look magical.
Boo's reaction to the cake was great. She said it was exactly what she wanted. I am glad she is so easy to please.
Any question, please ask.
