My turning-6-year-old daughter decided to have a Tangled (Disney's animated Rapunzel movie) themed birthday party. As usual, we went to buy a shaped cake pan to decorate, only to discover one didn't exist! So, we had to get creative. Using an image of the Rapunzel tower from the movie, we crafted our own Tangled Cake.
The middle portion is 2 9-inch round cake layers.
To decorate, we tinted the base with a light gray and the top part with lavender. Using black icing and a narrow tip, we drew on bricks. The flower tip was used to make the green ivy, and a few red flowers. Her hair was vermicelli pasta. Thin pretzel sticks were used to simulate the wood work and create the window for her hair. I have a feeling the mini chocolate chips and yellow chicks were last minute additions by my daughter.
When decorating, my husband found it easier to decorate the base BEFORE adding all the top layers.
Good luck and enjoy!
