This homemade fairy cake was made with a Dolly Vardin cake tin as the skirt which I iced with homemade butter icing. Both the cake and the cupcakes were made with just a home brand butter cake mix - but I needed about 6 of them to have enough. I then iced and decorated the mini cupcakes (about 50 of them) with the butter icing, edible glitter and stars I made from fondant that I coloured and rolled out.
The cupcakes were then layered on top of each other (sideways) and pushed into the icing on the skirt to make them stick - but they pretty much balanced on each other as well. I used left over coloured fondant to make the bigger stars for the base. I used a cheap doll as I had to chop off her legs at the feet to make it the right height and then attached the wand and crown and used a butterfly that I bought to make the wings. I used any left over butter icing and small stars to fill in the top section where the cupcakes stopped.
This Fairy Cake is made of two 13x9 cakes. First place one of the cakes then cut the second in half. Place it on top of the first cake. Take the other half of the second cake and cut off a corner to place the third level. I always put a little icing in between layers to keep them in place! At this point ice the entire cake.
On this cake I used four 12 ounce containers of white icing. When icing is done spray cake with cake spray in any color you like be sure to let each color of spray dry at least fifteen minutes before applying the next color. When you do the spray be sure to cover counters it does have over spray! At this time you are ready to place the fairies in any arrangement. At the base of the fairies I added simple sprinkles.

I wanted to share with you this Homemade Fairy Birthday Cake I made for my daughter's fourth birthday. She loves fairies. When I looked for it at my grocery store it was $50, which was way too expensive. So I decided to make her one. It’s not really hard to make. All you need is a fairy Barbie doll, remove the legs.
I used a molding pan and added an eight inch pan to the bottom to make it higher. I put it in the fridge for just a little bit, so I can be able to angle the bottom of the dress with a knife. Then I added the doll and I colored my frosting and covered my fairies skirt and decorated it with piping gel, jelly beans, and glass candy that you might find at any food store. My little girl had the biggest smile on her face.
The bottom layer of the Fairy Birthday Cake is a homemade fresh strawberry cake, next layer is funfetti, next layer was chocolate. Top round layers are marble and strawberry. Chocolate fudge butter cream filling and covered with butter cream frosting.
The trees were made by putting together an ice cream cone and a sugar cone with royal icing and then frosting with green royal icing and piped leaves and the truck is done with chocolate candy melts. The waterfall was done with piping gel tinted blue.
My daughter really loves and wanted a fairy cake, so I came up with this creation. She and everyone else absolutely loved it.
It was made using two round cakes, one 7" and one 10", both covered in pettinice (fondant) and then decorated with fairy topper and other bits and pieces. The board was a 15" round board also covered in pettince and edged with contrasting ribbon.
