Homemade Cinderella Birthday Cake

I made this Cinderella birthday cake for my niece's 5th birthday. I got this cake idea from the many examples on this website. I used a Wilton doll cake pan for her dress and then just inserted a dollar store Barbie doll inside the hole. The height was good and her foot fit into the bottom layer of the cake to give it more stability.

The bottom is just a standard 10" cake pan. ( but I used a cake mix and a half to give it more height.) I used two different kinds of box cakes mixes which looked very pretty when it was cut. I crumb coated both cakes and covered the bottom in fondant . Then I dyed the fondant for the skirt ( sky blue) and just used tinted blue Vanilla icing for the rest. I also wrapped her arms in white fondant to look like gloves.

It was my first attempt at using fondant and it came out just lovely.

I was inspired by this website to create a Cinderella cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday. It was my first cake ever! I made an 8" round base for the skirt and doll to sit on and to add a bit of height. I was intimidated to use rolled fondant, but I actually had fun with it and preferred it over the buttercream.

I used fondant on the round base and Wilton's buttercream recipe for the skirt. I used Wilton's Classic skirt mold for the doll. I wrapped the bottom half of a Cinderella doll in saran wrap and cut a hole in the top - I would measure next time, because my hole was a bit too big and Cinderella had a bit of a lean to her.

I used a spreader to make the skirt marks in the buttercream. I wasn't totally thrilled with the way the icing looked on the skirt, but everyone was thrilled when they saw it!

What an inspiration to first time cake makers.
You did a great job. With practice makes perfect, can't wait to see what you will do next. Looks like you have a knack for this. I can remember when I was a little girl, my mom making my cakes from scratch and loving them. It's really becoming a lost art, everything is store bought now, what a shame, right! Keep it up, you're creating wonderful memories. Great Job!

The mannequin is the doll for the wonder mold, with the head and arms removed. You can cover with fondant or use a plastic spray, which is what I did. The bottom of the dress is, of course, the wonder mold. Covered on fondant.

All accents are 50/50 gumpaste/ fondant. Everything was hand made and edible. Very fun, but time consuming.

I did a Cinderella cake and used one of the doll inserts that has no legs. I used a dome pan for the cake. Be sure to read the directions for volume; my instructions for how many boxes were outdated.

It was a warm day, so I had to refrigerate the cake to keep the frosting from melting on the warmed plastic of the doll's torso.

I made this Cinderella cake from a Barbie my daughter had and used homemade pound cake for the base. The dolls dress was made of regular white cake and i used a Pyrex bowl for the dress shape.

The cake the Barbie is holding is a mini cake I made and used toothpicks to keep it in her hands.
It turned out really well.

I did this cake for the 4th birthday of my friend's daughter who just loves Cinderella's story. I had a picture of Disney's Cinderella and tried to do it the same as possible.
