Silvermist Birthday Cake

I decided to make a cake for my daughter who is having a birthday next week. On Wednesdays we have dinner at church before Bible study and I thought this would be a perfect way to celebrate Lauren's birthday. Since will be not be at church next week, I did her cake a week early and although she knew I was doing a cake, she didn't know what it was going to look like.

I covered the cake in fondant and made all the flowers out of fondant. I got a little creative trying to get make different flowers from the cutters I already have. The water lily took a bit of time, and I never did figure out how to do the center like the real ones, so I just put a yellow dot in the middle. Still cute. Lauren's favorite character in Pixie Hollow is Silvermist and I was fortunate to find a small doll to put on her cake a few weeks ago. (Love those Disney clearance prices!) She was very surprised when I showed her the completed cake with Silvermist right on top!

This cake will be last one for awhile, taking a break for the holidays and other much needed projects! Keep up my favorite blogs (listed to the right) when you need a cake fix!

The bottom tier is done in green to represent the Pixie Hollow meadows and fairy's home.

Cake with lots of cupcakes!
