I made this Angelina Ballerina cake for a very special friend for her 30th.
Hand drawn design cut out into a template and used to cut the cake's shape out of 2 large square cakes. Filled in the middle and iced on the sides with a delicious chocolate ganache (half cream and half chocolate melted together on steamy water and left to cool to a spreadable consistency).
I use Wilton Icing Gels to colour my buttercream icing and either black icing or licorice can be used to do the outlining and some gold edible balls for decorational purposes.
We used two cake rounds, cut to make sort of a 8 shape for this Angelina Ballerina Cake. Then used two of the mini doll cake pans. I think in all only one cake box was used. Fondant was used for the skirts and sparkly sugar sprinkle for the top of the platform to kind of make it look like a spotlight on the stage.
This was for my daughter's 3rd birthday and my mom helped me with design! Not bad for the 6th cake ever made - first one without a specific character pan!
