Close up pictures of the Fairy Birthday Cake

I’ve had a few requests for more pictures of the cake which I iced for Honey’s 6th Birthday last month (posted at THIS post), so here are some close ups of the cake (below).

I did use some scrapbooking supplies on this project!  The wings are cut from a sheet of acetate and I used Stickles to draw the wing patterns.  I also used some stickles around the doll’s forehead and hair to make her a little more sparkly (it was actually a Cinderella doll!)

I coloured some white ready made fondant icing with blue food dye and after covering the main skirt, I cut thin strips of both blue and white icing to make the twisted tendrils and then piped the darker blue which was just icing sugar and water (and colour) and I have to admit to being a little on the runny side!

The cake itself (inside) was created using 3 pre-made chocolate sponges (victoria sponge type) – on of top of the other.  I still then had to pile the off-cuts to the top as the dolls legs were sooooo long!  I didn’t want to destroy the doll (as it was another gift for Honey) so I carefully wrapped the bottom half of the doll’s dress and legs in cling film before making the cake around her!
