{ Tinkerbell Cake Done Organic Style }

If I had to pick my favorite cake ever, this is it. Custom stand I made, organic and peanut, gluten & wheat free to boot. That was the clients request and the facility ( KIDS U ) ended up being peanut free so Thank God for checking the website prior to making the cake or it would not have been allowed in.

It all starts with the stand which was fairly easy with a little planning ahead. Measure the pans and figure the structure and just put the pieces together using 1/2 inch plywood and a large square dowel in the middle held together by tiny "L" brackets on the top and bottom which I covered in plastic wrap and screwed down so not to touch the cake.

I chose a round piece of wood for top so it would resemble a tree better and planned to have the leaves hang over the side to hide any imperfections.

After frosting the bottom layer in pink buttercream icing I started to make the trunk out of cut pieces of fondant which I folded to make roots and a trunk. I adore the tiny mushrooms around tinks big old tree! 

They are the cutest thing ever.

view from above, the tree looks good enough to have lunch under. I think it turned out great! The client went nuts and her daughter loved it too!

Enjoy and let me know what you think!!
