Woodland Fairy /Sprite Wedding Cake
Close up of the Fairy Cake
The Fairy Cake Inspiration
This was a fairy cake designed for a bride with a medieval flair, not the knights and ladies, but more the woodland theme.
The cake pan sizes for this were a 14" hexagon, 8" round, 11" hexagon, double tiered 6" round, 10" square and a cereal treat hand shaped mushroom top.
Wedding Cake Decorations
All decorations for this fairy cake are edible. The leaf pattern was done with a fondant lace mold #316 from CalJava
and dusted with 5 different colors of green/brown/gold luster dusts.
The tree tiers are covered in chocolate fondant and just scored with a fork. The tree face was added and tweaked with a fork until it looked right. The fairies were made of marzipan and used in molds from First Impressions.
They were hand painted with luster dust. The cake is all covered in fondant icing and the flowers were all gumpaste.
Thanks for looking at my Fairy Cake! Some of the details of this fairy cake can be seen in the second photo

I think this is the coolest cake I've ever seen. I spend an awful lot of time (some might argue TOO MUCH time) watching cake shows on television. This cake far outshines any cake I've ever seen those people make.
