This Homemade LPS Theme Birthday Cake is my first time doing a 2 tier cake, I wasn’t expecting it to turn out this big! So I suggest if its for less then 10 kids don’t make 2 tiers. This could probably feed like 30 people. I made this cake for a girl that is turning 8 yrs old.
This is a Chocolate Cake with mint icing. So I put a whipped cream filling in between the layers. I did 2 – 6″ pans, and 2 – 8″ pans to create the height. After assembling the 2 tiers, I applied a crumb coat layer on the cake, stuck in the fridge for 10 mins, applied a purple icing layer on top. I then sealed it in a air tight container and left in fridge overnight to keep the moisture in.
Next day I applied another coat of purple icing on and smoothed out as much as possible (wasn’t easy!). Then I did a hot pink to match the theme of LPS and used a large star shape tip to do the pink star trims. After I used sky blue to create a baby blue to use for the paw prints & the lettering I used a small circle tip. I then used a tip with a bunch of holes that helps resemble grass, with green icing.
Her parents provided the lil toppers for this cake, which you can easily buy at any store that has toys!
