Coolest Fancy Nancy Birthday Cake Design

My 6-year-old daughter wanted a Fancy Nancy themed party, so we made a Fancy Nancy Birthday Cake Design which was colorful, glitzy, and covered with all things girly.

This cake was three tiers displayed on the Wilton Graceful Tiers stand. The stand was decorated with pink boas and flowers and butterflies from Hobby Lobby’s floral section. We added some sunglasses, a cascading necklace, and a tiara for the topper. These are all accessories Nancy wears in her books.

The bottom tier is a 10-inch, round, chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing. I used the recipe on the back of Ghirardelli baking cocoa, and it got rave reviews from our guests. I used a round tip to pipe white buttercream in a lacy pattern. This was much easier than I thought it would be, but it was the layer everyone asked about.

The middle layer is french vanilla (everything is fancier in French!) cake baked in a heart-shaped pan. I covered it in buttercream and edible, pink, heart-shaped confetti I found at Hobby Lobby.

The top tier is a 6-inch, round, french vanilla cake with buttercream. I used a number 17 tip to pipe white and violet buttercream swirls around the top and bottom and then set a tiara and heart-shaped candles on top.

If you’re planning a Fancy Nancy party, there are many, many items you can get from birthdayexpress.com to add to the theme. I hope your party will be fancy like ours! Thanks for looking!

  1. This is wonderful! Thank you so much for posting. my daughter is turning 6 and we tried to order a fancy cake from someone we know (tiers and fondant, etc.). But she was doing two other cakes already. I don’t work in fondant and haven’t really done much stacking, so I was thrilled when I saw this. LOVE the cake stand and the all the rest of it. If imitation is the highest form of flattery, you should be flattered! I’m going to do my best to replicate your awesome cake. :)
