Crown Cake 3

Crown Cake

Crown Cake

This crown cake was made using 22 cupcakes put together to look like a princess crown. I put icing on the bottom of each individual cupcake to hold them in place. I then iced the main part of the cake as one, but the top cupcakes I swirl iced with tip 32 to look like turrets on a crown. I used piping gel to make the hearts and diamonds look like jewels.

I used a Wilton scroll pattern to give the crown a royal look, and then tip 3 to write her name. I was afraid to cover the board in foil because I thought the cupcakes might slide. After making this cake I now realize that they would not slide, and I should have covered the board with foil.

This crown cake was a cake made for one of my friend's little girls. Her name is Laila and she was turning 3 year old. Mom wanted a princes party with dress ups and tiaras etc.

She sent me some pictures of some cakes and only wanted a little small cake but I have so much fun making cakes that I wanted to make it fabulous for her. She was so excited when she saw it that she had to make sure everyone that came through the door saw it. I was so happy that she loved it.

I am using this as a template for my daughter's 3rd birthday cake - important question -- what did you use to make the crown??? That's the trickiest part I'm finding... HELP! Thanks!

Princess Tiara Crown Cake On A Pillow

Princess Tiara Crown Cake On A Pillow

I used these directions as a starting point for this crown cake: http://cakecentral.com/article113-How-To-Make-A-Royal-Icing-Tiara.html

However, I did not use royal icing for my crown, I used white candy melts. (The design of the crown needs to be simpler, because you cannot get as fine a line with the candy melts.) And I added small jelly beans (jelly belly type) as "jewels".

The name plaque and Disney princess pictures are frozen buttercream transfers (directions here: http://www.cakecentral.com/article12-How-To-Create-a-Frozen-Buttercream-Transfer.html), but I wasn't pleased with how they turned out.

great crown I did mine out of fondant. The royal icing was more difficult than I imagined.

I used candy melts because I find them easier to work with than the royal icing. I think I went over the same pattern about three times, to make sure the crown was strong enough.
