Coolest Little Fairy Cake

I saw a cake a bit like this little fairy cake online and just loved it by little cottage cupcakes. I tried to make a similar and simpler one and this was the result. The cake was for a little girl’s first birthday, her mom asked me to just make a simple cake. I got a bit carried away and she loved it.

The toadstools went down really well and were torn from the cake as soon as the photo was taken. I loved the little butterflies and they were so simple, made from paste and left to harden draped over a toothpick then add the sugar pearls. For the little fairy I added just a touch of blush to her cheeks with red edible dust, also was pleased with how her name turned out in the flowers on the front side of the cake, inscribed letters in gum paste and left to harden with their petals before putting them on the cake. I discovered food glue is the way forward!
