I made this fun birthday cake for my niece a couple of weeks ago, and I have to say, it does get easier with each new cake. I loved that the party theme was Unicorn Pegasus. What could be better for a six-year-old little girl? Here's a brief run-down of the process.
I love how two 6" rounds look stacked on two 9" rounds. The proportions seem perfect to me.
Before I stacked the top tier, I put a few bamboo skewers in the bottom for support.
The top tier is on a cardboard cake board, which sat on the bamboo skewers and worked really well.
I stuck a skewer through the top in the center, then instead of cutting it off, I wrapped the pink fondant around it for the unicorn horn.
I thought about doing more embellishments but ended up liking the simple look the best. I usually do. We have another birthday next week, but I don't have a plan for the cake yet. It may or may not involve fondant. I haven't even sent out invitations, so it's probably going to be a low-key occasion. Either way, I'm sure it will be a good time!
