I used a mini dolly pan and found the Polly pocket Disney princess dolls from Toys R Us.
For Cinderella, sleeping beauty, Snow White and Belle, I used fondant to make the skirts and brushed on cake glitter dust. I left the shirts on the dolls because I thought it would be too hard to try and make something out of icing for tiny dolls! For Belle’s dress I used a flower cookie cutter and cut out white fondant and then brushed it with yellow cake edible glitter.
Sleeping beauty I used a heart shaped cookie cutter and just pressed in the top half of the heart on both sides to make the top half of her skirt, Cinderella I just rolled the icing and moulded it to the shape I wanted.
For Aerial, I made her tail and sea weed out of modelling paste (I am from Australia so might be called something different – it dries hard) and I used gel food colouring to colour in the top half and then used (non-toxic – decoration purpose only) glitter so it would be sparkling!! For her sand hill I just used butter icing and crushed biscuits and make the waves out of fondant and used a cutter
It took me about 4 hours to make these Disney Princesses Cakes including moulding the tail a few days before.
I made this cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday because she is totally obsessed with Disney princesses. This cake is made using a kit that you can order online and includes the plastic tower pieces, turrets, door frame, picture frame and princesses. The kit also comes with detailed instructions, including what tips to use.
I baked two yellow cakes in a half sheet pan according to the pans directions and then cut the pieces according to the kit directions to build the castle. After an initial crumb-coating I iced the cake with white icing and created "bricks" using a wooden skewer. I then added the towers and piped the door with a ridged tip to look like wood. I then piped the vines (on sides and back) and topiaries. The kit says to make icing flowers, but I used artificial flowers for convenience. I iced the board to look like a moat around the castle and used chocolate icing on a graham cracker to create a bridge. This castle was a huge hit, and was much cheaper to make myself than to get at the local bakery.
I made this Disney Princess cake for my daughter's 4th birthday. Since it was only my second time making fondant, I had some trouble with it tearing and ended up with a couple of places that needed some work. Overall, however, it was a hit at her party and she just loved it.
The bottom layer is a banana cake with butterscotch filling covered in marshmallow fondant. The top layer is chocolate cake with butter cream filling also covered in MM fondant. I made all of the flower accents, hearts, and leaves myself and painted luster dust over them. I made these 1-2 day in advance. The castle and princesses are a cake kit I purchased online.
Shelby wanted THREE of the princesses on her 4th birthday cake. I found the "princess toppers" and made the skirts from rc treats and fondant and gumpaste and touches of icing flowers. Everything else was completely edible...even the "glass" slipper made from isomalt sugar.
I covered the cake board with fondant and gumpaste flowers and trimmed the edge with fluffy tulle and pink ribbon.
The bottom cake was yellow cake with strawberry filling and an actual layer of cheesecake topped with cream cheese frosting. Middle tier was red velvet w/cream cheese frosting and the top was chocolate espresso with chocolate filling. All covered in fondant and airbrushed and hand painted details.
Comments for Homemade Disney Princess Birthday Cake
I made this cake for a friend of mine who's daughter loves the Disney Princess'. She wanted something different than your basic 1/4 sheet cake. This cake is two 10'layers for the bottom and two 6" cakes for the top. I airbrushed the bottom Violet and the top Pink with an airbrushing gun and edible airbrushing colors. You can also use the spray colors that come in a can. The toppers or "kits" as some bakeries call them can be purchased at most of your local bakeries.
