Try It Tuesday: Barbie Fairy Cake

This is the cake that I made for my daughter's 7th Birthday Party. I have mentioned before how we are huge FAIRY FANS in this house, so it only makes sense that we finally had a fairy themed birthday party. I will share more about everything we did for the Fairy Party in another post, but I wanted to share the cake with my readers right away.

I made this Barbie Fairy Cake for her, you can see the other cakes I have made on Northern Cheapskate when I taught myself how to make & work with fondant.

To make this cake I made 2 round cakes and split them and arranged them as you see above. I then made homemade fondant (tastes so much better and cheaper than pre-made stuff!) I frosted the cake with a tub of frosting that we added Duncan Hines Flavor Creations to (it give it color & flavor, she chose Pink Lemonade). I frosted the entire cake in it and then rolled out homemade green and blue fondant and decorated the wings and made a matching skirt for the Barbie (Giselle from Barbie in the Pink Shoes).

I have one happy little girl with such a special birthday cake!

Check out all the posts I have done that revolve around fairies!
