I made this Cinderella and her Fairy God Mother cake for my daughter’s 4th birthday.  She really wanted a doll cake which I wasn’t keen on but I decided to do it for her with a twist by adding the Fairy God Mother.

Fairy God Mother face was modeled out of fondant and hand painted.  Her body was molded Rice Krispy Treats.  In her hand is a small firework sparkler which we lit along with the candle to sing Happy Birthday and recreate the magical moment Fairy God Mother transforms Cinderella into the beautiful Belle of the Ball.

Cinderella is the Disney Store Doll, wrapped in cling film and placed into a cake carved to the shape of her dress.  I used logs of fondant underneath the outer layer to create the ripples in her dress.  And I created a wired star arrangement to recreate the sparkles all around her as her dress is transformed.

The cakes sit on to separate bases embossed with a star design.  One reads “Happy Birthday” and the other “May all the dreams you wish come true.”

In the end I fell in love with this cake and was so glad I decided to make it for my little girl.
