My daughter loves Cinderella so I decided to make her a Cinderella birthday cake for her 3rd birthday. I used the Pampered Chef large glass measuring bowl which made the perfect shape for her dress.
I also made a 9 1/2 in round cake that I used as her platform. I put fondant around the edging of the base, placed the dress cake on top and used regular icing that I colored blue for her dress. Then with the fondant I made the side panels, bow in the back and the dress for her torso.
She was such a big hit at the party and the look on my daughter's face when we brought the cake out was priceless. She was so happy and asked "is this for me". I can't wait to use my bowl again to make a Belle Cake next.
I baked the Cinderella birthday cake using the Wilton sports ball pan. I only used one half of the "ball" to create the skirt. I purchased an inexpensive short Barbie type doll, and removed her legs (this is why it needed to be cheap lol).
I iced the dome first to get the cake to look smooth. Then pressed the doll into it. I piped the dolls top to match the dress, then piped stars around the skirt and dots around the torso. I used white icing to pipe the peplums on the hips, and tiny white "pearl" candies for the beading around the dress, and even used them to give the doll some jewelry.(easier to place if you use tweezers)
The little princess I made this for couldn't have been more thrilled with her "Cinderella" cake.
I made this homemade Cinderella birthday cake for my daughter's 5th B'day party, she loves the disney princesses. I used a Dolly Varden cake tin and then decorated it with ready made icing, I rolled it out and coloured a small section light blue and a larger section dark blue, I also made the pumpkins, cushion and flowers out of the same icing.
I applied a thin layer of Wilton sparkle gel over the dress when it was finished, to give it a sparkly shine. The doll I bought had the bodice already painted on, I removed the legs and skirt. I did some research on the internet and in cake books seeing which ideas worked and what would look good. My little princess loved her homemade Cinderella birthday cake!
This Cinderella carriage cake was made for a Charity fete last year which supports children with terminal or degenerative illnesses. It's called "The Rainbow Children's Trust".
I was approached by the organizer of the event, who asked if I would donate one of my "party cakes". These are simply Victoria Sponges or coffee cakes - not birthday cakes. As they are such a worthwhile charity (as indeed, they all are) I decided to make them the Cinderella Carriage.
They e-mailed me after the event and said that they had used it in the Raffle and that they had doubled their raffle ticket sales! I was totally over the moon by this. They have come back to me this year and asked for another cake!
I used the wonder mold pan for Cinderella's dress and used a real Barbie Cinderella for this Cinderella Birthday Cake. I wanted to use the real top part of her dress so I tightly wrapped the bottom part of her dress in press 'n seal wrap so it would not get messy while inside the cake. I put this on top of a square cake and added some flowers!
I used a Dolly Varden tin for this Cinderella Birthday Cake and a Cinderella Barbie Doll with her legs removed. I simply iced it blue and white, and used silver cachous and little pre made white and blue flowers and blue ribbon for decoration with a sprinkle of edible glitter for some sparkle.
