I love making girly princess cakes like this one! This was a pink vanilla sour cream cake iced in a vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream covered in buttercream fondant. It was my first time working with buttercream fondant and it definitely tastes a lot better than the fondants I've used before. On the down side, it is more expensive and not as easy to work with.
The windows are made from fondant brushed with pearl lustre dust and the borders and leaves under the windows were piped on with royal icing.
The window box was made with rice cereal treats covered in fondant. The pathway was made with rainbow nonpareils and the border piped with royal icing. I really love the lime green color of the fondant on the cake board too! The turrets were brushed with a purple lustre dust.
All in all, I'd say this was a cake fit for a 4 year old princess' birthday - Happy Birthday Peyton!
