I purchased two cakes boxes. Any flavor your little one desires for this Princess Belle Birthday Cake.
The bottom layer is a 9 X 13 cake mold, second layer is a 6 in. round cake mold, top layer is a kiddie bowl covered in foil then wrapped with a princess ribbon around it (can purchase ribbon at Walmart). Whatever is left from the 6 in cake mix, use for cupcakes. I purchased silver paper cupcakes, so that the towers have some shine.
Icing - purchase 2 large whipped white fluffy icings. Use food coloring of your choice. I used pastel blue for the bottom layer and purple for the second layer.
Layer your cakes. Use 4 cupcakes, one for each corner. Frost the cupcakes. Frost sugar cones then roll in white or colored sparkles or sprinkles.
I used colored marshmallows to decor around the cake. Cut off the tip of the cones and insert flags, make sure to have a marshmallow in between. Flags are easy to make. Cut Princess ribbon, glue with glue gun onto a toothpick. (Be careful not to burn yourself).
Finally, purchase a cake topper of your favorite princess and sprinkle the rest of the cake with any sprinkle you like. I used stars. I also used a sparkle jell around the cupcakes, the second cake and to write her name.
This is a really easy cake to make. My daughter loved it! Hope your child does too. Happy Baking.
This Belle Princess cake was made in two pieces, the base being a 9x13 cake and Belle's dress being made using the large Pampered Chef glass mixing bowl. I used two Duncan Hines marble cake mixes and converted them to pound cakes by adding additional ingredients.
Belle's dress, along with the base of the cake and the roses were decorated using the #22 Wilton star tip. I used the Wilton bismarck tip #230 for the leaves of the flowers (just give a pull and it gives a nice pointed end that looks like a leaf).
The grass was smoothed on with a decorating knife. The additional "Beauty and the Beast" characters and the horse were ones that came with the doll. The horses saddle is also made out of icing. To cover a few flaws we created the dress to look like train with roses trailing behind (of course there were very few flaws).
For some added sparkle I sprinkled the cake with yellow and pink decorating sugar - clear could also be used. I am sure this will be a hit with all the girls!
I was asked to make a birthday cake for a friend's little girl's 3rd birthday, originally she wanted a Dora one - but then decided to choose a kettle from the "singing kettle".
I started this Homemade Singing Kettle Birthday Cake by making a vanilla sponge in a Pyrex bowl, but when it was cooked realised that I hadn't made enough cake mix to make it deep enough so I then made a round vanilla sponge.
I leveled off the round cake and sat the dome shaped one on top of it, using vanilla butter cream and jam to sandwich it together. I cut the dome shape along the middle to add more vanilla butter cream and jam.
I iced the cake with yellow fondant icing, using this to make the lid and spot too - the spout has cocktail sticks in it to hold it in place and was made first to allow it to dry and harden. I used florist wire for the handle and covered it in the icing. White fondant icing for the eyes and mouth and a black food colouring pen to add the details.
