9 Absolutely Gorgeous Princess Cakes

June 6th, 2016 by Desiree Smith

Planning a princess party? Since it’s one of the most popular birthday party themes, we wanted to share a few of our favorite princess cake ideas. Make her birthday wish come true with one of these fairy tale cakes.


This Australian bakery produces nothing short of amazing work. The stunning gold fondant crown was a perfect addition to a gorgeous lilac buttercream rosette cake made for princess Tiana’s birthday.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: You can create your own custom crown using the Baroque Silicone Fondant & Gum Paste Mold.  Use the jewel-like border to form the base and fleur de lis shapes to create the intricate detailing along the sides of your crown. Wrap fondant pieces around a round object (a large canned food item works great!). Attach each piece using Gum Paste Glue. Finish with Gold Color Mist Food Color Spray.

We love the intricate detail work of this corseted fondant Princess Dress Cake. Bliss Pastry did a wonderful job of weaving in realistic details, shown through the soft flowing fondant skirt and beautiful buttercream string corset top.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: Add a beautiful sheen with shimmering Orchid Pink Pearl Dust and Lilac Purple Pearl Dust.

Shut the front door. This Princess Castle takes the cake…to a whole new level (2 stories high to be exact).

THE INSIDE SCOOP: You can make this cake using the Romantic Castle Cake Set. It comes with plastic “turrets” to transform a 2-tiered cake into a magical castle cake. Cover them with any color fondant to decorate.

If your little girl loves Hello Kitty, then this princess cake is perfect for her. Fondant-covered cakes are punched up with heart-shaped cutouts, featuring the birthday girl’s name and age. A simple bead border adds extra visual interest and a handmade Hello Kitty cake topper is the crowning jewel of this princess cake.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: Use a decorating brush, a mixture of lemon juice and Gold Pearl Dust to paint on shimmering accents like you see on the crown and number 5.

Simple and sweet, this Pink & Gold Princess Birthday Cake is absolute perfection with a dash of pure sophistication. And we love that the gold princess silhouette showcases the birthday girl’s age.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: Use the edible Gold Metallic Candy Paint Brush to achieve the “drip cake” technique shown.

Glitter & Gold princess CAKE

Another sophisticated beauty, the one is down-right regal. I mean… Without giving away my age (I’m just a tad too old for princess birthday parties), this cake has my name written all over it. From the stunning gold grown and gum paste flowers to the edible glitter tier and pearl sprinkle-encrusted diamond pattern on the 2nd tier…it is 100% S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: Make these flowers and other beautiful varieties using the Gum Paste Flower Cutter Set and Ready-to-Use Gum Paste.
