So it was my daughter's 5th Birthday on the weekend and she wanted a Fairy theme this year (see http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426252.0#axzz2b6g1lzRE).  

So off we went to the library, we borrowed a bunch of cake books and combined that with Pinterest research and she finally decided on "the cake" out of one of the Library books (which I can not for the life of me remember the name of). Anyway, the instructions were great but of course my attempt probably looks nothing like it but hey, I was pretty happy with it in the end.

What a massive job it was though. Five separate cakes (two normal sized at the bottom layer and three mini, which I only had one tin for, for the tower) plus crumb coats, icing and decorating = the whole day making a cake! So worth it though to see the look on my girl's face. Smiley



Thanks for reading! Smiley
