My daughter was turning 3 and was obsessed with anything to do with fairies. She often told me she wanted to 'see where the fairies lived' - so I decided on making her a Fairy Tree House - it was a pretty big cake but we had a pretty big guest list!
I basically made 3 round pan cakes (buttercake mix) and stacked them on top of one another with some chocolate icing in-between to hold them together.
Then I rolled out chocolate fondant icing till it was very thing and wrapped it around the entire cake - making into a 'tree stump'. Then I cover the tree stump with a thick chocolate buttercream icing. I pushed pieces of broken, flakey chocolate into the icing to make 'tree bark'.
I made the leaves and the tree roots out of fondant and just coloured them accordingly with food colour. The little sugar flowers I bought in the supermarket.
I mixed green food colouring with coconut and caster sugar and sprinkled this around the base for the grass.
The actual fairies came from a local $2 shop - I was going to make fondant ones but just ran short on time.
The cake was a huge hit - I was pretty proud of myself because I am not very creative really!
I made this Homemade Fairy Land Cake for my daughter's first birthday. She really likes fairies and I wanted to make a unique cake. The base is just a few 9" round cakes cut and sloped. I believe I used 4 total. The tree stump was made of Hershey's chocolate bars that I placed around an empty crystal light container and then I melded them together with melted chocolate. I used some melted peanut butter chips to add some color to the tree stump as well.
I put it all in the freezer to solidify the tree. The leaves on the tree were pre-made sugar icing from Michaels crafts. The mushrooms are meringue cookies that I stuck on top of marshmallows with frosting. I made pink meringue cookies and saved a little un-colored meringue and made the dots on top of the mushrooms. The big rocks around the base are chocolate covered marshmallows and the little rocks were just the chocolate ones that I purchased at a candy store.
The fairy cake topper was one that I found on Amazon. My daughter went straight for the mushrooms on top. The kids were really excited to dig in to it.
I made this Fairy Princess Cake Design for my friend's little girl who was 4. It was really simple to make but looked stunning.
I used Victoria sponge mix in a 2 pint Pyrex bowl for the dress, and put it on top of another round sponge cake so it was tall enough to stand the doll up inside. I carved out a hole in the middle of the cake for her to stand in. I cut the cake into several layers and filled them with jam and whipped cream. I then iced the skirt with pink butter icing.
The dress for the doll is a few circles of tulle decorated with glitter glue, as are the wings, gathered in the middle. Needless to say she was speechless when she saw her cake, and wouldn't let us cut it! She still plays with the doll, and I had to adjust the skirt later so she could dress her in it.
