My daughter wants a Tinkerbell Cake for her 14th birthday which is in July . But I like to prep and organize way in advance . She asked if I could make the Cake in 3D form . Can some one help me out on this one . I've been searching the site alot lately and i haven't came across any 3D Forms of Tinkerbell to give me some references.

I was thinking on stacking some cakes and carving it down to have her shape but I need some directions on how to gets this just right. I'm a little confussed on what size of cake would be right to stack and carve .

Anyone Please !

Thank you,
Julie

I'm doing a Tink cake next week, but mine is two tier with a fondant Tink on top. I havn't ran across any 3D Tink either. Do a search on the web for a site called Tinkfanatic. There's so much stuff on there, you may find what your looking for. Happy Baking!

Catin,

That looks like a pretty complicated cake design. I would suggest using Shape-A-Cake Clay. You can press the clay into the bottom of a pan and essentially form an inverse mold of Tink. Then pour cake batter over the clay. See the website below for more details.

The clay is easiest to use when there are relatively simple features that should pop out of the cake (see the video demos on the website below). Given the complexity of Tink, I would recommend practicing a cake before the event to get a feel for how much clay is needed around the edges of features and how to form features that aren't too sharp, thereby trapping the cake.
