My Daughter's Birthday Cake

This is my 5th attempt at a fondant covered cake. I think I'm slowly getting the hang of this. This is my first attempt at piping an icing tiara though. I had great fun with it. I made this for my daughter's 12th birthday - she thought it was a real pillow with a tiara when she first saw it - so did everyone else, including the adults. Once they found out that the pillow was a cake, they still thought the tiara was an real tiara. LOL

Thankyou SO much for your kind comments! :) I used a template that I found in the Sketches, Patterns and Templates gallery supplied by 'spottydog' (here is the URL for it (...) ). I just adjusted it slightly.

What a beautiful cake! I haven't done asculpted cake so far, but now I will try. If you have any tips or suggestions on achieving that beautiful shape and shine they would be soooo appreciated :) :)

Goodness, I would be dangerous if I read directions... I just saw the tutorial on making the pillow cake and it explains it perfectly. I don't have the guts yet to attempt something like that tiara, it is perfection! :D

"Wow!" is right! That tiara is awesome! I thought it was one of those adorable ones from the toy department. How did you do those pink jewels???

faerybeary Says... 7 years ago

The pink jewels are unfortunately the only part of the tiara that was not edible - I did tell them before they started munching away at the tiara. I used plastic jewels I got at the craft store opposed to glass rhinestones.
