I'm 12 years old and I love to bake cakes for my family and friends. This cake was for a little girl turning 8, who wanted Hannah Montana. I had a lot of fun making it. I started with four chocolate cakes made from a box. Two large, two small. I icinged a larger one with light lavender buttercream frosting and then placed the 2nd larger one on top. I icinged the rest and then placed the 2 smaller ones on top. I icinged the whole cake light lavender and then placed a viva paper towel on the cake and slighty patted it to make it look smooth. To make the the music notes I used a small round tip and made three wavy lines around the bottom layer only. Then used a medium sized round tip to make stars. For the butterflies I used round tips, I outlined butterflies then filled them in with the Hannah Montana colors, I also made polka dots & snowflake like things for extra girliness. I then made the roses out of icing which I probably would have done differently but it was my first time making roses. I added the finishing touches with bright green leaves, neon pink border, and writing happy birthday on the top. I hope you all enjoy my cake and it was very easy to make as long as you make sure you bake the cakes a little longer for extra strength.
I wanted to make a cake for my daughter's sixth birthday. She worships Hannah, but I didn't want to make the same old guitar cake I keep seeing. So, I got the Wilton star shaped cake pan and had a little fun making her a Hannah Montana Star Birthday Cake.
The first cake has Hannah's initials from the logo you see everywhere. No where in Phoenix carried the gold dragees that I wanted for the "lights" on the M, but we found something called "glitter gel" that ended up looking just right.
We used the purple rosettes for her candles. Because we have a humongous family, we made two cakes. I didn't want to repeat the logo because, quite frankly, creating the gradient on the H sucked. So, I did my research and found autographs from Miley that girls all over the country had scanned in.
The writing on the cake is a rendition of her handwriting, and the signature is as close as I could get to hers. All of my little girl's cousins were so jealous that Miley had "signed" her cake.
I also let her put star shaped sprinkles on the written cake. They actually turned out looking like a really cool scatter pattern.
I know my little one really thought this cake was awesome. I hope it helps someone else think of an idea for the little girl in their life.
Hannah's body for this Homemade Hannah Montana Birthday Cake, is (3) or (4) 6" round cakes with a hole cut into the middle of each big enough for a Hannah doll to fit inside then stacked and frosted and carved down to look kinda like a triangle. Wrap the doll in saran wrap and wrap hair up also so frosting doesn't get in hair. Then slide doll in the opening.
After frosting, wrap cake in fondant then make the top of the dress in fondant, make sure all seams are in the back.
Now the guitar is a rectangle pan that I laid a guitar stencil that we cut out of paper and cut around it taking off all excess cake. Then frost the sides and cover in fondant. The stars and knobs are fondant and the strings are sewing thread. The neck of the guitar is from a plastic guitar that we just pushed into the cake after it was done.
