I made this Princess and the Frog cake for a 4th birthday. The little girl was thrilled with it. I must say so was I, as this is the 1st time I’ve attemped anything like this. I got my ideas from looking at images on the internet and found this site purely by chance. I will definitely use it again when I am looking for other ideas.
It is all made from vanilla sponges and fondant icing. The pond is a 9″ cake and the frog element is made from fondant. The princess is 3 cakes, made with 7″ sponges topped with a 2 pint pudding basin cake. I sandwiched the cakes with jam, then covered all with a thin covering of butter icing before covering all with fondant.
As you can see I have used flower shaped candle holders to make up the waterlilies. Finally I covered the board using butter icing and shop brought icing flowers.
