This Princess Crown Birthday Cake was my second fondant cake ever! And my first two-layer cake! I was determined to make my daughter's 3rd birthday cake. I spent hours online researching how to make my own fondant and for easy designs. I found a design similar to this but they iced the triangles on with a metallic pink icing verses using fondant. I used a small square cookie cutter and turned it sideways to make the diamonds. I did not finish the edge of the cake since I covered it with the feather boa.
The tiara came with the small boa already glued on it. I found extra tall white candles at our local specialty paper/gift shop and placed them behind the crown. Although, it is a very simple cake it is a great one for beginners. It is a vanilla box cake with a homemade raspberry filling and crumbed in butter cream. It was a big hit with the family AND my daughter. I am so glad I went outside my comfort zone and gave it a try.

My daughter had a princess theme for her 2nd birthday. So I decided to go with a Princess Crown Cake.
I baked a 9” x 13” cake using a strawberry cake mix and then carefully cut out triangle sections to make the three points of the crown. I also baked some strawberry cupcakes and used three of them to make circles at the tops of the points. I iced everything with strawberry icing first and then added the decorative parts afterwards.
I used pale pink edible pearls that I got at Michael’s to outline the stripe at the bottom, the three hearts in the middle, and around the cupcakes at the top. That was definitely the most time-consuming part of the process. I used bright pink sprinkles to fill in the stripe and the cupcakes.
I used sparkly pink gel icing to fill in the hearts. I found some crown candles at the store that were perfect to go on top. It wasn’t very difficult to make, and it turned out pretty cute. And my little princess loved it!
This Princess Crown Cake was the first cake I ever made, 2 years ago, and since then I have made many more!
I used one cake mix to bake 2 small round cakes, 1 pan slightly larger than the other. Then I stacked and iced them in pink buttercream icing. I tinted the icing to a darker pink and used a star tip to pipe around the middle and the bottom of the cake. Then I piped the white zig zag detail all the way around and added the silver dragees.
I got the crown from the Dollar Store and added smarties and silver dragees around it, using silver dragees for the number 5. The birthday girl loved it so much, she asked for the exact same thing the next year for her 6th birthday party!
For this Homemade Princess Crown Birthday Cake I used 2 layer 6 inch cake pans for the top and 10 inch for the bottom. I covered them in Wilton white fondant. I used wooden dowels in the bottom layer to support the top layer, then 1 large dowel through the center of both to keep top from falling off. I used cutters to make the stars and 26 gauge wire purchased from a cake supply store.
For the crown, I cut the shape out by hand with a knife and placed it on a wonton soup container lying on its side to get the curved shape. The jewels on the crown are colored fondant that was placed in a jewel mold. The letters on the cupcakes are also made from fondant using letter cookie cutters.
