A Cake Fit for a Princess!


Once my three year old settled on a theme for her birthday party, the design for the cake was a no brainer! This Cinderella cake used an actual Cinderella doll that was covered in fondant. I won't lie, this cake was a total pain in the butt. The fondant for the skirt needed to be done in advance so that it would harden and still keep that flowing feel to it. Unfortunately it kept cracking every time I tried to take it off the mold though, and I ended up forming the skirt portion 3 times... good thing I started a month ahead of time! Under the fondant, the entire skirt portion of the dress was edible yellow cake with a strawberry cream cheese filling and buttercream frosting. My little princess loved her little princess!
