Green topsy turvy tiers create a lush hillside suitable for our fluttering fairies.  A stone pathway winds up the side of the cake and leads us to a home constructed of twigs and leaves.  A pixie home that is seriously just too precious for words.  Amidst all the whimsical fun is an arrangement of flowers and twigs, aligning just right to spell the birthday girl’s name.  Aidan.  It’s an incredible scene full of fairy treasures!

Fred from Dream Day Cakes shares the scoop on this design:

“This three-tiered cake features fairies in their natural habitat– among the grass, twigs, and natural wonder of the woods. The setting could be any backyard; so those kids need to be careful when playing outside this summer.

The top tier of the cake focuses on the fairy home. Most likely constructed from an old branch and then covered with leaves. To recreate this home, we used fondant covered cake and then fondant leaves.”

More from Fred at Dream Day Cakes:

“The middle tier shows fairies frolicking near some steps to the next tier.  The fairies, steps, twigs, flowers, swirls, and mushrooms were all made with fondant.  The grass was hand-painted on the cake.  Two fairies are on this tier; one with her wand.”

More from Fred at Dream Day Cakes:

“The bottom tier show more natural elements as well as spelling the birthday girl’s name in sugar flowers. Fondant steps continue to the cake board where the birthday girl’s age has been formed with fondant buttons. A butterfly rests while a non-edible Tinkerbell looks on.

We like combining the sugar art with non-edible toys for children of this age.”

I am a huge fan of ‘character cakes’ that are inspired by the character rather than a literal interpretation.  And this cake is the perfect example of how showcase Tinker Bell and the Disney Fairies in magical birthday cake!  All of the incredible details make this an enchanted meadow worth celebrating.

A very special thank you to Yeni and Fred at Dream Day Cakes® for sharing this delightful Fairy Birthday Cake with us today!

    I agree with Heather the way the name has been created on the side of the cake is brilliant. Im a fan of painting on cakes and the painted grass adds a really lovely depth to the cake. Its a very beautiful design.
