Princess Cake for a Princess
by Kelly Petrillo
To make this princess cake, bake two 9x13 marble cakes, let cool completely. Leave one cake whole for the bottom, cut the 2nd cake in half for the second layer and the third piece into a triangle shape for the top layer.
Ice the bottom with white icing then top with the half piece, ice again with white icing, top with triangle piece and ice again.
Smooth your white icing out as much as possible. Then I mixed portions of icing with green, pink, purple and yellow food colorings.
To decorate I used the 25 piece cake decorating set from Wilton. S
Since this was my first time I used this set I used a portion of the icing to practice each shape. Then I randomly put vines all over the cake, then I put leaves on the bottom portion of each cake (for border)and a few leaves on a couple of the corners.
Then I took the pink icing using tip #32 I put rosettes along the vines. You can vary the sizes by how much icing you push through the tip.
Then I took the purple icing using tip #3 I put dots in the shape of flowers with the leaves and using the same tip, I topped these flowers with a yellow center.
I topped each cake layer with a princess, these are the light up cake topper set. Since there is not room on the cake to write Happy Birthday, I decorated the cardboard cake board with Happy Birthday and more vines and flowers.
You can purchase the cake board bottoms and cake boxes at Walmart or Michaels for transporting and I like to go to Publix bakery to purchase their buttercream icing. The icing is the perfect consistancy for the decorating and holds up very well.
