Snowflake cage - and my first doll cake!

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake A lady contacted me about doing a frozen themed Elsa cake for her granddaughter's 5th birthday. I had in my mind that I wanted to do a snowflake 'cage' but instead of a regular round cake, I wanted it around a doll cake (my first attempt at both). I'm very happy with the end result! What are you most proud of? That the snowflake cage didn't break, and the pattern itself - it took forever to stitch together! What advice would you give someone starting this project? The cage alone took 4 hours to pipe. I did this about 3 days before the cake was due so I wouldn't have to rush last minute.

What you will need

  • Fondant
  • Royal Icing
