My neighbor was having a princess party for her 5th birthday. She loves Cinderella so decided that she would like me to make a Cinderella Carriage Cake.

I made the cake by joining 2 (box) cakes baked in my pampered chef glass jug. They took a lot longer to bake than I anticipated. Once the cakes started looking cooked, I kept testing them with a skewer until it came out clean. I left the cakes to cool throughout, then carved the pumpkin lines with a bread knife and leveled the tops and bottoms of the cakes with the cakes balanced on each other.

Blue is the little girl’s favorite color so we made the marshmallow fondant(MMF) the palest of blues with a blue door. (The recipe for marshmallow fondant was found on Google). Once I had covered the main cake I placed it on the blue satin. The nameplate on the door is also MMF and I sprinkled gold luster dust around the edge of the nameplate and the letter. I attached this by moistening it a little bit.

I used a flower shape fondant cutter to make the top of the coach and folded it around a toothpick. I moistened that and sprinkled gold luster dust. I used the base of the toothpick to attach it. The window is black MMF.

The wheels are made with piped white candy melts sprinkled with pearl luster dust.

Finally, I covered pretzels with some light blue fondant and placed them to act as a harness for the little pony. I was going to mold a pony but it proved too difficult. Placing the pretzels was one of the most difficult things and I would probably use something thinner if I made it a second time.
