With the new Disney film “Tangled” just being released, my daughter wanted a Rapunzel cake. I searched the internet for a Homemade Rapunzel Birthday Cake Design, but couldn’t find any. So I basically tried my best to copy the dress from my daughter’s Rapunzel doll.

I couldn’t find a Dolly Varden cake tin in the stores, so I ended up buying a croquembouche mould to bake the cake in. To make the waves in the dress I used rolls of fondant underneath the top layer. This was only my second time using fondant icing, so it took some getting used to! I used store bought fondant which I dyed in different colours, and used it to decorate the shirt as well as the bodice on the doll. I took my time decorating the cake – it took about 4 hours over two days to decorate.

This Rapunzel cake was the most intricate (and frustrating) cake I’ve made as yet, but my daughter loved it and I got many compliments on it from the party guests.
