Lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream.
I’m glad I only had a dozen of these to make. Making all the little things ( hand molded from fondant) to go on top was a little crazy but I do like how they turned out and my friend loved them too.
Princess cakes are so much fun, you can make them as “girly” as you like with lots of frills. This one, a 10″ classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. I made bright pink roses in varing shades, wrapped the base of the cake in pink ribbon to match the roses and piped dots on the sides with touches of lavender here and there. The wand was handmade from fondant, the star I cut with a cookie cutter and was brushed with silver dust, the handle rolled and brushed with gold dust, a small silver bow added to the handle. The Tiara was purchased.
Note: The Mother was so pleased when she saw the cake saying “that’s exactly what I wanted, a very girly cake” and of course that made ME a very happy cake decorator.
