I made this Fairy Garden Cake by making two 18" rectangle slabs - a vanilla flavoured one and a strawberry flavoured one, then I formed a 1 by cutting the cake in half. One half was used as the body of the one, the other half was cut in two - one piece used as the base of the one and the other was cut into 2 triangles, and 1 was used as the top piece of the one. I ate the other triangle while having a break , with a cup of tea.

I then added buttercream and jam between the layers and iced it, then covered it with fondant icing. I made the fairies out of fondant. The flowers and toadstools are also fondant - but were much were easier. I used the website cake-central.com which gives step by step instructions on how to make a fondant fairy and you don't even need any tools or cutters. I was so pleased with the results. It took a lot of time and effort, but it came out fantastic. The lettering for her name was traced out from photocopied paper then cut around with a knife.

All in all, I hope you like my masterpiece. I hope my little girl likes it when she sees it later.

I made this Homemade Fairy Garden Birthday Cake using a plain vanilla sponge mix and then divided it into 3 batches and made 1 strawberry and 1 chocolate. I cooked them in separate round pans then when baked layered them on top of each other with a chocolate buttercream in between each one.

I cut out 2 little holes on each sides for little windows. I then covered the 'log' in chocolate buttercream icing and white icing in the windows. To achieve the tree look I used a fork and gently scraped it and made sure I did the knot bits occasionally.

I used a piece of fondant in black as the door, marshmallows for the toadstools and homemade chocolate lollipops as the insects. I also used green buttercream icing as the grass and used more of the chocolate buttercream to put tree roots over it. The stepping stones was a marshmallow cut horizontally in 3, the fairies are ornaments and the fairy flower ring was used with the star tip and buttercream icing. I also sprinkled edible glitter all over it to give it more of a fantasy/sparkle look.

Fairy Garden Cake

I wanted to make a special cake for my sister (actually for baby shower). I used 2 layers 12" and 8". Each layer has 2- 2" cakes with a cappuccino filling. The cakes are covered with turquoise buttercream, then sprinkled with sparkle sugar (from Wilton) to make it sparkly. I used a grass tip to make edges and fill in areas around the cake (green grass) the tip has a flat top with a lot of holes. I topped it with a collectible fairy and I wired assorted silk flowers and greenery to wooden skewers to place around the cake. The butterflies are from a craft store, Some were attached to the cake with icing others I placed floral wire into the butterfly bodies then placed them into the cake. It does serve quite a few people so if needed could be sized down a layer or only 2 inch layers. Make sure to place about 5 or 6 dowels in the middle of the 12 inch layer to support the top one.
