Coolest Tinkerbell Cake

I made this Tinkerbell cake for a first birthday party. The square “field” on the bottom is yellow cake, while the tree stump is chocolate cake.

The field is one layer yellow cake I baked in the square 12″ pan, covered with buttercream icing grass (I used the hair/grass tip).

The stump is made out of devil’s food chocolate cake and I baked it in two 6×2 in. round pans. I used homemade chocolate icing, which is actually cooked, so I iced the stump while the icing was still hot and it spread easily. Then I chilled the leftover chocolate icing and put it in an icing bag in order to make the roots. Then, with a kebab skewer, I traced lines and whorls into the chocolate icing to make it look more like bark.

The flowers and leaves are also made out of buttercream. The mushrooms were made using Wilton’s meringue mushrooms directions (they came on the paper included with the meringue powder).

Tinkerbell, is actually a candle that I bought. I put some leaves and flowers around her base in order to make her look more like part of the cake (I also made sure my icing colors matched her).

  1. Wow, the cake is beautiful. I’m going to attempt one today for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. I wish I had Googled this a few weeks ago when I was planning my cake!!

  2. I love this cake and I am going to TRY to attempt it for my daughter’s 5th birthday in a month. I make her and my son’s birthday cakes every year and I go all out so it should be too much of a chore, but all the grass will be more than I have done before.

  3. I was just wondering which tip did you use to make the little flowers on the cake and around the base? Love the cake, very creative. Thank you.

  4. I was thinking of doing a doll cake until I saw yours. LOVING the tree stump idea! (Plus I already bought a candle like that one) Thank you for sharing your idea!

  5. I was going to do a bunt cake with doll on top, until I seen this. My little girl will be 2 Monday. She seen this and said, “mommy I like this”. Wish me luck. Thank yig for posting.
