Tinkerbell 5th Birthday Cake
Tinkerbell Birthday Cake
This cake was made for my daughter's 5th Birthday.
I started out by making royal icing flowers and "rocks". Do this a few days before so that they can dry completely.
I then made a 13" round cake, two 9" round cakes and a top cake made in a 9" Pyrex bowl. You need to keep an eye on the bowl cake, as there is no set baking time and it does take quite some time to bake through.
Once the cakes are COMPLETELY cooled, stack the the two 9" round cakes slightly askew on top of the large round base cake. Then put the bowl cake on top of that (also slightly askew). Do not make the ledges too large because the back overhang will become a problem. Keep the staggering to about an inch.
Cover the entire cake with a skim coat of icing to keep stray crumbs at bay. Allow to dry. Using a toothpick, sketch out the outline for where the waterfall will be.
Mix leaf green gel coloring into white icing and cover the cake leaving the "water" area for now.
Mix sky blue gel coloring into white icing, leaving some white marbling. Spread this in swirls and downward strokes to imitate the flow of water. Add blue glitter gel (Wilton) in random pattern and blend in slightly to get rid of any lines and add dimension to the water.
Put Tink on top and add royal icing flowers and rocks to the scene. Finish with a generous dusting of "Pixie Dust" (white edible glitter).
