This Fairy Cake Design was created using a 10 inch and 6 inch round cake. I used the large Wilton straws for the supports for the 6 inch layer. I also used a longer straw to dowel the cake. To make the central dowel on the cake I cut a whole in the six inch board. I put the dowel in the main cake and then sat the six inch on top of it. This allowed me to have the support for transporting but without the hole in top of the cake.
I used butter cream icing and the grass tip to ice the cake. The entire cake is iced with the grass tip. I also cut out about a 2 inch square out of each layer to get a gradual waterfall. For the waterfall I used piping gel and colored blue. The mushrooms were created out of fondant and I also used store bought candy rocks. The fairies were bought at a local toy store and placed on the cake.
As you can see this Fairy Cake Idea was my first foray into making flowers and mixing colours! Fortunately my niece thought it magical. She wanted fairies and Unicorns, I found several colouring books that had the subjects in them. I also can NOT draw, so I traced using tracing paper, transferred on to water colour paper (craft store) and use water colour pencils to colour. Then went over them with a wet paint brush - sounds complicated, but it really wasn't.
If I combined all the time it took to draw, colour, and glue them to bamboo skewers - took about an hour. I used some cool paper for the wings. My niece wanted something different than a "flat" cake - so being a cheap aunt that I am, I covered/camouflaged bean cans with painted paper.
There really wasn't a good place to put her name, so I just did the flying fairies.
This Fairy Cake Design is my first Barbie cake that I made of cream cheese frosting and buttercream. It's for my sister in law's birthday. I used red velvet cake for her because she loves that cake very much. I used the Wilton doll cake mould for the skirt but I put another 8" cake for the barbie doll to look higher.
I put a wing behind the cake like a new movie of Barbie, Barbie fairy secret. I really love the colour. I put a bouquet of pink flowers to make the cake look more real.
My sister in law loves this cake very much and I also have a lot of ideas to make a Barbie doll cake for people to order.....hmmmmm....at least I try my own imagination and art skill for the cake.
This fairy garden cake is a milk chocolate mud cake with buttercream icing. The flowers are all made from fondant with royal icing centers. The mushrooms and figures of the fairy and pixie are fondant.
I made the butterfly using rice paper. I painted the image using food colouring paste diluted with water on one side then did the same thing on the other side. When they had dried I coated it with clear piping gel and then piped the body with royal icing.
