I made this Homemade Tinkerbell and Friends Birthday Cake for my daughter's 4th birthday and she loved it!

I made two of the Wilton’s 9 x 13 cake pans plus a couple of cup cakes. I used a total of 5 cake mixes. Lay one 9 x 13 cake on your cake sheet. Cut the other 9x13 in half and lay it on top of the other layer so that the edges meet on one side. With the remaining 9x6.5 cut it diagonal and layer that on top your other two layers. Next, add doll rods to add strength to the cake.

I did a crumb coat and then put it in the freezer for a little while to firm up. While it was in the freezer, I made my butter cream frosting and tinted it in the following colors:

Leaf green (a lighter version) =base of the cake
Leaf green (a darker version) = leafs = tip #67
Moss green = vines = tip #4
Rose Pink = flower = tip #30
Violet = dot flowers on vines = tip #2
Sky blue = water
Lemon Yellow = little flowers = tip #16
Brown & lemon yellow mixed = mushroom

After spending some time in the freezer it made it easy for me to frost my cake in the green. Next I added the blue stream that flows down all three layers. After I had my water how I wanted it I added some blue sparkle gel to make it look like real water. After the water, I placed my mushroom and fairies. I purchased my fairies from Amazon (Tinkerbell Fairy Friends Signature Cake Topper). They are actually stamps that my daughter was able to keep as a present after we cut the cake. The last step is to add your flowers, vines and leafs.

This is my first time making a multi layer large cake as well as flowers, vines and leafs. I had a lot of fun making this cake!

I love this cake idea. I'm going to attempt it for my boy/girl twin birthday. (One cake Jake & the Neverland Pirates)

How do you do the cake rods? Just 4 corners of all 3 layers then it goes in freezer?

Cake Rods

I did not use cake rods or freeze the cake. I just layered the cake using butter cream icing. Do what is easiest for you and have fun with it!
