Princess Cake #2
This is a Princess cake for a 3 years old girl's birthday party.
It is two layers of vanilla pound cake, iced with pink butter cream, and decorated with butter cream pearls. I used pink pearls as a border between the two cake layers.
A good cake decorating tip to smooth the butter cream, is to use a patternless paper towel. I gently placed the paper towel on the cake surface, and gently rubbed to smooth. This is a great way to smooth colored icing, too.
The customized princess cake topper crown was made from gum paste, which was molded and dried around a coffee can to achieve the rounded shape.
The crown was then painted with edible food coloring dust mixed with vodka (alcohol evaporates quickly).
The jewels at the bottom of the cake are also made from gum paste.
One happy little girl will always remember the beautiful princess birthday cake that she got for her 3rd birthday!
