Hi! I'm new to cake decorating, and I've been asked to do a princess cake! I'd like to put a pillow on top of a 1/2 sheet cake. How do I make the pillow? I've never used fondant in my life and I'm freaking out! icon_eek.gif Is there another way I can do this?

Thank you for any advice you can give.

Oh, I just luv the princess cakes! I do those all the time! Well, crowns at least! I have not made a pillow cake icon_cry.gif some day soon!!! Here is the tutorial here on the CC Site of how to make it. Even if you are new to caking, you could probably do it if you take your time!

A pillow cake on top of a sheet cake is a TON of cake! How many people are going to be served? icon_eek.gif

She didn't tell me how many people, just asked for a half sheet cake. I am very interested in these crowns you make. What do you make them out of?

You might want to find out how many servings you actually need. A half sheet is 12" X 18" .

1/2 sheet cake is still a ton of cake! The crowns are made out of royal icingl. There is a tutorial for those, too. (I made one, pink cake in my pix). They are cool. Have to be very careful, tho, cuz they break easily.

I would do what Leahs says, tho, and really find out how many people are going to be having cake! icon_biggrin.gif
