This is a sweet fairy tale Cinderella cake I made for a friend’s friend’s little girl. The cute little Cinderella princess (chibi version =p) was provided by her and I was given the challenging task of making her carriage. I sought to use soft sweet colours that were Cinderella themed. Blue, as was the gown she wore to the party, and light pink, her mother’s gown, and of course cream colour for a classic look. I have shared recipes for the Vanilla chiffon cake (reduced egg yolk) for top tier, and Strawberry yoghurt chiffon cake for top tier. The Cinderella carriage was crafted from 2 vanilla bowl (Glass bowl, Iwaki brand, 11.5 mm OD) chiffon cakes. I stuck them together and did some carving for the pumpkin shape. The details on the carriage were added using layer chiffon cakes, which I also used to create the ribbons, frills and letters. I rolled some of the pink layer cake into mini swissrolls for the carriage wheels. I used marshmallow cream (made from melting some marshmallows with a sprinkle of water in the microwave) to join them on.
Thankful the mummy shared everyone loved the cake.. and the little girl really looked like a princess beaming with her cake!
Don’t we all love fairy tales?
With lots of love,
