What's better than one Tinkerbell birthday cake? Two! What a magical experience. I googled around to see how other decorators have interpreted the tinkerbell cake phenom, and I found a design very similar to this one I used. The actual cake is iced in purple and blue buttercream, and Tinkerbell and the flowers were made from fondant a few days prior. For the flowers, I took the plunge and ordered some cute plunger cutters. They were half the price than the local cake supply store, and well worth the money. I wish I had purchased these ages ago! And with lots of colors and cutters to choose from, one can get quite carried away -- especially while watching figure skating. :)

Anyway, this little beauty was for a friend's bridal shower. It's a 10" square golden yellow cake with raspberry whipped cream filling. The exterior is iced and decorated with vanilla buttercream. I really love doing the "lace" look on cakes. It takes a little longer but alleviates so much stress. In other words, I don't have to spend forever trying to get the icing perfectly smooth, because the lace piping goes over it and really transforms the look.
