I'm looking inspiration and ideas. DD is turning three on Friday. She's requested a fairy cake.

Would anyone be willing to share pics of cakes they've made. I'm looking for simple and easy to construct cakes. I do not have a lot of skill with these types of things.

dont know how to get pics from my phone to the computer.

I just made a rectangle cake & "drew" a picture of a fairy on it & then decorated around it.  I got a basic cartoon type pic from the internet, cut it out & then outlined it onto the cake using icing sugar & toothpicks.  When icing the cake, I referred back to the picture to see where wings would end & dress started etc as it is sometimes a little tricky to work out the toothpick holes & icing sugar.  The background I made into sky & grass.  It was effective & didnt require construction work

DD requested a doll cake this year which was very easy to make, you could do something like that and just get a fairy type barbie doll.  Also, it was suggested to me to look up YouTube.com for ideas and videos on how to make and this is where I found it really helped. Easier option is to make/buy a slab cake and purchase some fairy cake toppers (I have seen these at cake shops).  Or try Woolworths I have seen they are making themed cakes now, they might do one up for you.

The Toadstool cake isn't too hard from the Women's Weekly Cookbook. Just basically 2 bowl shape cakes one slightly smaller than the other on top of each other with buttercream and lollies etc for decorations. Plus little fairy ornaments around it.

Or you can get The Fairies icing images if she likes them.

eta: Or there is Tinkerbell icing images. Or you could pop a tinkerbell toy on the cake.

I made this one for DD a couple of years ago - it's fron the Birthday Cakes book the Women's Weekly put out.

The trellis is made from melted chocolate that is drizzled in a pattern and then draped over tins (I actually found it much easier to make a big wodge of baking paper) when it's nearly dry. Bought the fairy from a kitchenware shop, ribbons and some of those sugar flowers you get in the supermarket. DD adored it.
