Here's a special princess cake for your little royalty. A pillow cake sits on top of a round cake adds that majestic touch. Different shades of the celebrant's favorite color, pink, was used.
And of course, the four princesses were added to complete the cake.
YOU WILL NEED:
10" round cake
6" square cake
rolled fondant (in light and dark pink,green and white)
medium and small flower blossom cutters
pastry tip 104
pastry bag w/ couplers
pink luster dust
small paint brush
INSTRUCTIONS FOR A PRINCESS CAKE
For this cake I use a 10" round cake torted, filled and iced with buttercream.
You will need 4 colors of fondant - light pink, dark pink, a bit of green and white. The fantasy flowers can be made ahead. Using the dark pink fondant, make 6 small ribbon roses , 1 medium and 1 large. With the green fondant make a few leaves to go with the roses. Make small and medium blossoms with the white fondant.
Imagine there are 4 corners to this cake. Cut up 1" strips with the pink fondant, 3 per corner for a total of 12 strips. Cut up 5/8" strips, 2 per corner, for a total of 8 strips. Apply to cake forming a cross as in picture.
I made the pillow cake following the instructions from this tutorial . I used a 6" square cake to carve into a pillow. Light pink fondant was used to cover the cake and dark pink was used with a clay gun to make the twisted ropes and tassels. I used a cutter embosser to quilt criss-cross design on top of the cake. Using a brush, paint the pillow with pink luster dust mixed with a little lemon extract.
Using a tip 104, create a border by going on a continuous scripted W. Place the small fondant fondant roses and leaves in the space between the stripes. Place the blossoms randomly around the cake. The 4 Disney princesses were then placed on the cake with one on top of the pillow.
