Ballerina Birthday Cake

For Princesses (she changed her nickname yet again… She’s asked us to call her Princess or Pinkalicious at all times from now on!) 5th birthday we went with a ballet birthday party.  I wanted something different than other ballerina cakes I’d seen around the internet, so when it struck me to do a point shoe on it’s toe I just had to do it!


I didn’t want it to have a dismembered foot in it, so it’s just the shoe.  I stacked four 6 inch round cakes together with a dowel running down the center.  Then I started carving away until I was happy with the shape!  Then covered it with ganache and fondant!, and at the end added thin fondant ribbons.


After I finished I kind of wished I’d made a second one as well, so it was a pair instead of just a single shoe.  But I LOVE how it turned out, and so did the birthday girl and guests!
