A Pink Princess Cake

I am lucky enough to have friends with fanciful little girls who delight in all things princess. This gave me a great opportunity to make a princess cake for a pretty princess party.

This cake was 10" and 6" and frosted in all buttercream. The top tier was quilted using a mat pressed into the smoothed frosting, then small sugar pearls were applied with tweezers to complete the look. Fondant (and fondant/gum paste) was used for the stripes and daisy accents. The tiara was made from royal icing and finished with silver and pink luster dust. It rested on five hand painted fondant hearts. The cake was white almond sour cream with lemon filling.

I was so happy to have helped contribute to this little angel's Princess Birthday. (isn't she just precious?)


  1. the best birthday cake a princess could ever dream of!

  2. I am far from being a princess -- 48 year old mother of 27 and 25 year olds. And, as such, I could be considered a good judge of birthday cake since we've had so many! This princess cake was obviously gorgeous and intricate -- a tiara made of sugar?! -- but it also tasted great. Moist, lovely frosting, and a touch of lemon curd between layers to offset the sweet. Perfect! Sharon
