This homemade Littlest Pet Shop tiered cake was made for my daughter’s 7th birthday. It is a funfetti cake (2 1/2 mixes to be exact) with almond buttercream icing.

I baked the cake in a 11×15 pan and in a 9×13 pan. The layers were cut into squares, the bottom tier was 10×10, the next one up was 8×8, then 6×6, then 4×4. There is a layer of frosting between each tier, but I didn’t use dowels or anything too fancy.

I used my daughter’s toys to add details on top and then cascaded purple flowers throughout the layers for a fun effect. My only complaint was in the buttercream frosting. If I had it to do again, I would use a shortening based frosting as the buttercream kept melting (making my flowers and border look sloppy).

All in all, not bad for my first attempt at stacking cakes!
