Ballerina Themed Dessert Table (2114)
This weekend we created a ballerina themed dessert table for Nina’s birthday party. Last year we also had the privilege of creating Nina’s birthday cake and collaborated with the family to create this teapot themed party table.
This year, the theme was ballerina and features Nina on top of the cake in her cute ruffled pink tutu skirt and leotard. The cake also features 3d ballet slippers along with fancy ballet cupcakes and cookies all in different shades of pink.
Flavors and fillings included vanilla with vanilla custard, chocolate with chocolate mousse, and vanilla with vanilla custard, fresh strawberries
The 3 tier round cake is covered in various shades of pink fondant. The top tier is decorated in a piped pattern style reminiscent of this 21st princess birthday cake. To represent her 3rd birthday, we worked in dark pink number 3′s on the top tier. The middle tier is covered with dark pink fondant with a white oval plaque in the center. The plaque works in the clients monogrammed graphic used for the party. The final tier includes a dark pink pair of ballet slippers with a trailing dark pink ribbon.
Along with the cake we included 24 vanilla cupcakes decorated with dark pink quilted fondant patterns. The cupcakes were decorated with a combination of light pink ballet slippers and a sculpted tutu bodice in light pink with a ruffled tutu.
Along with the cupcakes, we included an assortment of different cookies included tutu cookies, ballet slipper cookies, number 3 cookies and letter “N” cookies for Nina’s birthday.
Happy Birthday Nina!
