I'm brand new to the forum's, just really starting out. I have been asked to do this cake, and I really really want to do it. It's not for a family member so I can't mess it up. I have no idea where to even try to start to do the princesses, I'm not an artist. The flowers and decorations are no problem. She wants the cake flat, not tiered. Also, what price would you suggest I charge? Any suggestions please?
Hi there, welcome to CC. I would do an edible print of all the princesses. Then cut around each one. And stick them on the cake. Are you going to cover the cake with fondant?
Sorry I cannot help with the price!
no the cake will be in buttercream the person doesn't like fondant. will an edible image still work?
I was just wondering if there were any other ideas? I have called a few places and no-one will make the princesses as an edible image due to the licensing.
you can try frozen buttercream transfers of the princesses.
Yes the images will stick to buttercream. I think that's what I'd do too.
I don't know if I have the talent to make a frozen buttercream. I guess I can try right, won't know if I don't try lol
super easy, basically just trace and color
I'll give it a try, nothing ventured nothing gained I'll probably end up posting it on here to ask you guys if it looks okay. Thanks
good for you! i look forward to seeing it.
That's what I do for all my kids'cake & also the writing is frozen buttercream transfer.I'm still new @ decorating & still not good @ writing with buttercream yet.
For a nonedible solution- Find a Disney princess coloring book with the pictures on the cover or cheap story book. Cut out and laminate the pictures. Place pictures on cake and pipe a bc trim around them.
Just a friendly bit of advice here, nothing more... You can't get an edible image printed because of licensing for the same reason you can't sell a cake with those images on them: you would be violating copyright law...
Not trying to bash you or be mean, just letting you know! Happy caking!
Thanks kansaswolf I wondered about that when I started getting answers that they couldn't do it. I'm just really starting out and mostly so far has been for family and friends. They are the ones encouraging me to put my foot in the water as they say I have done a couple of puppies and rabbits for easter for other people and they really liked them, so I thought I would venture further. This is really the first "custom" cake someone has inquired about. I have told her I can't do it. I am waiting for her to reply and see if she wants the same shape with some pretty flowers on it. I am though still going to try to do those buttercream transfers You ladies have got me wanting to try
By all means, put your foot in the water and give it a try! You could DO a Princess cake for a daughter's birthday or something, just so long as you don't SELL it... Hope you can still make an awesome cake for whoever contacted you! Good luck!
