I've been wanting to do a fairy cake and here was my opportunity. A sweet little one year old birthday party. I do believe this is my favorite cake yet! It had a lot of fun elements, and coordinating pieces. I used the paper plates and napkins to get my inspiration. If you want to see them here they are:
The cake is a simple white cake, and a Swiss Meringue frosting both from the Cake Book by Tish Boyle, filled with a Bavarian Cream filling -from The Cake Bible by Rose Beranbaum, and topped with my homemade Fondant. I used a 10" for the bottom tier, and 8" for the top tier.
Here is the little coordinating 4" smash cake for the birthday girl. For her cake I also used the same white cake but I used the Billy Vanillie Buttercream under the fondant, and no filling for that sweet little one.
I also made some cupcakes to go with the cake. These were fun! These were also white cake and the Billy Vanille Buttercream. My daughters helped me make the fondant flowers for the top of the cupcakes.
My sister in law came to my aid in helping me make the little fairies. We had so much fun assembling them and making all the little pieces to create them.
Our red head fairy.
The Princess Fairy on the top. She actually has a crown but I was so tired when I took these pictures I missed the crown. I put luster dust on the flowers, stars and fairies.
Here is the back of the cake. You can also see part of the top of the cake. My husband even helped roll the fondant balls. He is so sweet! I just loved the way it came out! So girlie and fun!
I want to thank everyone for their help! Janey thanks for hanging out and coloring the fondant with me. :)
Have a great week! Blessings, Rachel
