Cinderella Cake

I felt quite excited when I got my first ever order for a Cinderella cake. I've seen the pictures - the pretty Barbie stood within the iced sponge dress - but I hadn't got round to making one myself.

Until this morning!

It's for a client's daughter who turns 3 years old tomorrow.

The cake itself is chocolate fudge. Poor Cinderella had to be stripped of her original frilly blue dress and wrapped up in cling film in preparation for her placement inside the cake. I achieved the skirt shape using two standard 9" round tins and a bowl for the rounded top. After filling the layers with chocolate buttercream, I completed the shape using a bread knife. The cake was then covered with a 'crumb coat' of buttercream, in went Cinders and the fun bit began - the icing!

I used a Wilton 18 tip to do the blue rosettes and a small petal tip for the white frills.

It took me about 5 hours from start to finish including baking time. Cake decorating can take a lot of patience but this was a really enjoyable cake to do and I was pleased with the results!

I hope Ruby likes it!

  12. Fabulous cake! I like that you've used a real doll so that the birthday girl can play with her (after a bit of a bath). I've seen quite a few cakes which have used 'doll picks' that are just the head and upper body. A bit disappointing for the child, I've always thought! Gorgeous piping too xx

  13. i just don't know how anyone could dare to actually eat this - it's too amazing! although i'm sure it was equally as delicious as it looked ;) xx

  14. This is completely glorious.
    And Cinders got to keep her legs!!!! (I saw her on Instagram, I was worried!)

  15. I was the person who ordered this cake - it looked and tasted amazing! My little girl, has been talking about a Cinderella cake for 5 months and when she saw it her eyes lit up and was so excited to show everyone at the party. To top it of, she gets to play with the doll at the end! I have been coming to Caroline for 3 years and she has done outstanding cakes each time. Can't wait for this Saturday for my other daughters birthday cake. G xx

    1. Thank you so much Georgia!! It makes me so happy that Ruby loved her cake and gets to keep the doll after :) xx

    2. That's so sweet to see what Georgia had to see. I can imagine how well it went down with Ruby. If I received that cake now, I would be totally overwhelmed. Lucky little girl!
