The princess was modeled in portuguese sugar paste.

I applyed the fondant only in the side of the cake and folded it a bit to the top. Then made the contour with the pink flowers and hided the rest with the “sand” made from cookies.

The tree is made with a wooden stick and the leaves were made in advance so they can dry enought to hold the shape. Even though, I had to make a couple of coconuts to apply under just to keep my leaves on place!

Baking cakes in summer hilidays is great because there’s a lot of hand willing to help! My mother molded the anchor and I added it a metal eddible finnish. There’s lots of glitter on the cake as my girls love glitter! All the flowers and strars were cutted by my girls, my niece and my aunt! Even my husband helped by rolling the fondant so I could have time to shape the doll!
