I made this Rapunzel Birthday Cake for my niece’s 5th birthday party. Rapunzel was in attendance, so I needed to make sure my details where on point!
I purchased a Rapunzel Barbie and inserted her into the cake (I used the Wilton Wonder Doll cake pan), then added all the details with fondant. They do sell doll picks to use with this specific cake pan, but when I am doing a Disney princess, I like to use the Barbie so she is more recognizable. The Barbie tends to be a bit too tall for the cake, so you need to angle Barbie’s feet toward the back of the cake. Make sure you insert a knife (make two cuts in an x) before you insert the barbie or your cake may crack.
The butterflies are made with chocolate using a mold. You can buy all different colors of the chocolate wafers. Using a paintbrush, add the details in the colors of your choosing with the melted wafers (you can get them at bulk barn). Once dry (it doesn’t take long), fill with a contrasting color. Put in fridge to set (15 min) and voila!
