I made this Homemade Princess Belle Cake for my girlfriend's nineteenth birthday.
To make this Belle cake, I used three different size, round cake pans, layering them up from biggest to smallest before carving the shape of her dress. The Belle doll was a ballerina Belle doll that I found at Walmart for about five bucks. She was perfect because instead of wearing a full dress, all she had was a detachable tutu. I wrapped her legs in saran wrap before sticking her in the middle of the cake to keep her as clean as possible when she took her out.
The roses were made with red fondant and covered with red sprinkles, with a tooth-pick placed where the stem would be to make it easier to place them the cake and prevent them from falling out rather than ?gluing? them on with icing. The icing used was Frostin' Pride, and was piped on in a drape-like motion in layers using a flat ended tip after a crumb coat of icing.
The colors used for her dress were yellow and orange gel food coloring. I cut the banner out of white fondant and piped on the "happy birthday" with left over icing colored red.
I made this Princess Belle Cake for my goddaughters 5th birthday. She wanted a princess theme, but yellow has been her favorite color lately so thought this would be perfect. It was my first time making a cake like this.
I made Belle's "dress" by using a pampered chef 8 cup bowl. I used to cake mixes but as it was baking it was overflowing and burning the top but not cooking n the middle I ended up taking some of the batter out of the bowl while it was in the oven...then it cooked!!
After it was cooked, I let it cool all the way. I bought whip cream frosting from the bakery and food colored it yellow. I then coated the cake all around and let it sit for awhile for the frosting to build a 1st layer. I used a star tip design to do the flowers around the bottom of her dress and a circle tip for the dress design. I bought a Belle cake topper for Barbie cakes off amazon and stuck it in the top of her dress.
I made this Belle Birthday Cake for my niece's 5th birthday. She is a big fan of Belle & I love making these type of cakes. The doll is inside a white cake baked in the Pampered Chef mixing bowl that I inserted the Wilton heating core into to help cook the cake all the way through (this also helped open the middle of the cake to insert the doll). The bottom is a 8" round along with an 9x9 square yellow cake.
The frosting is Wilton recipe buttercream tinted yellow and red to match the bodice of the dolls dress. The Belle doll is a real 'barbie' that can be taken in the bathtub (wrapped in saran wrap to keep clean while in the cake). I then put the extra 'characters' that came with the doll on the cake. My niece loved this cake. She kept staring at it saying "it's so pretty". She was shocked when I took the doll out and she was able to play with it.
This Belle Princess Cake is a classic doll cake that I made using a 2.5 L Pyrex glass bowl and 3 9" round layer cakes underneath. I usually use yellow cake for the top (it's easier to ice and you won't see the cake through it) and chocolate for the bottom layers. I made the classic Wilton butter cream frosting and food coloring to match the dress she was wearing.
For the embellishments on the dress, I bought tulle rounds that I found in the bridal section at Michaels. I then found some stick on jewels that I placed on the tulle so she looked more decorated.
