A Pumpkin Princess

My niece turned 3 this weekend and the theme was pumpkin princess! She likes all things sparkly and pink. 🙂 This cake is a 10″ round with a pumpkin cake on top. The pumpkin was carved out of the wilton ball pan and covered in fondant. The crown is gumpaste with a hard candy jewel on it.

This fancy cake was made for my niece turning 6…and she loves Fancy Nancy and all things fancy herself.  This is a 6″ round cake with buttercream icing.  Fondant bow and “ribbon”.  The crown & glasses are gumpaste and the necklace is made of sugar pearls.

Island Princess Cupcake Cake

Posted by on Feb 22, 2008 in Birthday, Cupcakes, Kid Themed, My Cakes

Here is the cupcake cake I made for my daughter’s 6th birthday party with her friends tomorrow.  Cupcake cakes are made by putting a whole bunch of cupcakes together and icing over the top.  Then to serve you just take a cupcake off – no cutting! 🙂  On top is the tiara I made earlier this week (see pics below in the last post). I’ve put a pic below of the island princess barbie this was based on.

This is my first royal icing crown – well I should take it back – my second as the first one I did shattered on me during “dusting” :S  But This one came off with only one minor breakage and I’m just letting it sit another couple days before handling it anymore!  Let it get good and hard.  This is for on a cupcake cake I’ll be making for Sat for my daughter’s birthday party with her friends.  So hopefully it can survive until then! 🙂 

 The crown is made with pink royal icing and has 3 layers of design on top of each other for stability.  Then once dried I painted it with a pearl luster dust to give it a shimmer.
