Tinkerbell Cake

I created this fun and colorful Tinkerbell cake for a baby shower in late November. The mom-to-be was a chocoholic, so I themed the flavor of this cake as "Death by Chocolate".

The cake was super moist triple chocolate cake (chocolate cake with chocolate pudding and chocolate chips), filled with Ghirardelli fudge and frosted with home made chocolate buttercream .

The cake was then covered with fondant and decorated with fondant accents. All fondant pieces included the purple flower where Tinkerbell is sitting on, grass, pink mushrooms, grey stones, leaves and the pink/purple flowers. The only exception was the Tinkerbell candle.

You can find the candle at (Walt Disney Tinker Bell Tink Candle).

The base of the cake where 3 cake rounds that were covered with green fondant. I wanted to add some fun to it, so I wraped the base with a boa.

I'm glad to say that the cake was a success in this babyshower. It blended perfectly with the outside baby-shower party. The party's guest tables had center flower arrangements and we added little Disney Fairies figures to these arrangement, so guest could take home.
