I have just been asked to do a friends daughters 5th birthday cake. She is a true little princess and loves everything pink and girly. I would love to make her a 2 tier cake or a castle cake of some sort - have never made a castle cake and I am always up for challenges.
I love working with fondant and hate buttercream (sorry to all of you out there). I have not yet done any shaped cakes as such feel free to have a look at my pics to see what I have done.
I am really excited about this one, yet lacking creative juices. I dont need to do it until mid january so I have plenty of thinking and planning time.
I have asked them what they would like and the mother said the cake is going to be a surprise and that she would like it to be a surprise for her aswell - she is leaving it all in my hands.
Thanks everyone BTW there will be 20-30kids and approx 15-20 adults.
You should definitly do a castle cake!!! There are so many pics here on CC, they should get your creative juices flowing!
you could do a search for castle cakes. i did a "girlie" princess cakes and a couple other cakes that i would consider "girlie". they're bc, but could be easily made from fondant. also, anything dripping with flowers, butterflies, pinks purples, screams girlie girl to me.
My daughters 1st birthday is coming up in a month and I am doing a Queen for a day! I am planning on doing a two tierd cake white and pink with a crown on top. Then I am making her a velvet cape with fur edging to wear! I lalso like the pillow cakes.
here is a couple i had saved, they are gorgeous and girly...
but check out the site they come from, all of her cakes are gorgeous...
thanks for the link sweet_as_tisse!! what beautiful cakes and great inspiration..have saved that site!
There are also lots of girly cakes here on CC...you could do a search on the galleries for girly or princess etc...it is a pretty good search tool
thank you all so much - I think my biggest issue is that there is so much out there for a girly girl. I will continue hunting down the perfect cake and thanks for the site - am about to look at it now.
