Princess Birthday Cake & Barbie Desserts

This weekend was such a whirlwind of events…weddings, auctions, baby showers, and bridal shows, but with the help of my family I SURVIVED!  I actually have lots of things to blog about and am so happy I finally have spare minute to blog!  I absolutely love when clients want to order a custom cake with all the details and so when I got the chance to make this cake for a precious girl turning one I couldn’t wait. The cake was a lot of work…well, more like the crown was A LOT of work, but afterwards is was definitely worth it!

Here is the step-by-step process of the cake!  First I covered the three tiers in white, light pink, and deep pink.  Then I used an impression mat to make the dot imprint and cross-hatch imprint.  You just push the mat onto the fondant while it is still soft and then continue to follow the pattern around the cake.  

I then used my pearl maker to make pearls to go around each cake layer.

Next I added a ribbon band and made two different bows for the tiers.

I used royal icing to pipe little hearts on the cross-hatch pattern and then painted them with silver luster dust.

I then added the bands and bows to the tiers and sprayed the whole cake with pearl luster dust.  

Lastly I added my hand-made crown…which was very tedious by the way!  I had many problems with it not drying and collapsing, but finally (with my prayers) it stayed up!

A few weeks back I also got the great opportunity to make cookies for Mattel!  They were having a creative meeting for the upcoming 50th anniversary of Barbie and had me make cookies with their printed images on them and some cupcakes to go along with it.  I had a blast making them and seeing all of their great ideas!

I would love to hear what you thought about the cake and cookies!

    The cake is simply beautiful! I am inspired to try the textured mats. I have a great niece who will be celebrating her 13th b-day and her theme is Barbie! The cookies are exactly what i’m looking for “all doll’d up”. Could you tell me where I can purchase the edibles? PLease, please. This would be an added bonus for her party.
