Tinker Bell? — Maybe, Maybe Not!
This cake was made for my granddaughter’s 4th birthday celebration. Little did I know as a grandmother (at the ripe age of …….? I’m not telling) that Tinker Bell and her fairies had specific colors for their clothing. My granddaughter was with me while I was in the process of dressing the fairies and she chose the colors. Well, needless to say, when her Mom came she informed me that those were not Tinker Bell fairies because they were dressed in the wrong colors. My comment, of course, was “This is what your daughter requested and this is her cake.” SHE WAS OUTVOTED!
The bottom tier was chocolate with chocolate mocha buttercream filling. The top tier was plain pound with lemon filling. They both were frosted with buttercream and covered with MM fondant. The fairies were hand-sculpted from modeling chocolate.
The cake included everything from poured sugar wings and butterflies to colored piping gel for the waterfall. The flowers and lilly pads were made from modeling chocolate, as well.
Big hit at the party! After all is said and done, it’s all about the birthday girl right?
