Birthday Party Planning: Belle Cake


Yesterday I talked about the Mrs Potts Cake Pops that I'll make for my daughter's Belle themed birthday party, now I found this Belle Cake too.  Not sure mine will turn out so good as my experience with icing is not so good. Any ideas on getting the frilly skirt to look like that?  I think it looks like real thin marzipan?

Anyone made a Princess cake like this?

It's fondant. It won't taste good, but it looks pretty. You could do it as a centerpiece and then cut a sheet cake. Or do the dress in regular frosting and the ribbon and things with fondant.

I have made one before where I just made tons of stars on the skit part to like frills. Easy enough for beginner (as I am) and it looked cute.

Do it as a cake topper. We had one made for Alli with Ariel and for Carolyn with Barbie. Take my advice, don't pull the doll apart, just wrap the bottom in plastic wrap. I recall a meltdown at the party because Ariel was missing her legs. Yes, fondant is not a kid friendly taste. Try to get hold enough to do the trim and have the base of the skirt in frosting. It's time to practice Royal Icing, cause the store bought will not hold the trims. If you don't have time, call bakeries till you find one willing to sell you the frosting. We had a local bakery that sold us everything for girl scouts to make their own cupcakes.
