This Great Cake Contest entry was submitted by ksgk42104: My daughter loves princesses so what else could I make for her 5th birthday.
Prepare all your cakes. Let cool. Make frosting. Put frosting on top of 10" cake & top with next 10" cake. Frost with white buttercream frosting. Cut dowels so you have 4 to poke into the 10" layer. Set one 8" cake on top of dowels, frost top with white buttercream frosting and add second 8" cake on top. Now you have to cut enough out of the 8" layer so you can tuck a sugar cone in on each side. Don't set the cones yet though.
Now frost the 8" layer with white buttercream frosting. Repeat the top row with the 6" layer just the way you did with the 8" cutting enough room out to set 2 more sugar cones. Frost the 6" layer with white buttercream frosting. Smear large board with enough frosting for coconut to stick to for grass.
Place 3rd 6" cake for fountain. Frost as show in the picture and add details. Frost cake with flowers. Add graham cracker windows, doors and clock with colored frosting to cake and make steps with the part of the cake that was cut out for cones. Frost cones with enough frosting to make blue sugar stick. Add all details as in picture. the flag was done on card stock and says "Happy 5th Birthday Kate".
