I had never heard of Disney Descendants until asked to make this cake last October. The mom called and wanted a special cake for her daughter’s 7th birthday, which had a Disney Descendants theme. She didn’t want any of the Disney figures on the cake, but liked the red, pink, purple, black and neon green color scheme of the characters. I hand-cut the apple, plaque, letters and other details from homemade marshmallow fondant. The rolled fondant roses are made from Wilton red fondant.

The cake is 2-tier, chocolate cake with cookies cream filling (9″ tier) and Italian cream cake (6″ tier) and covered with vanilla buttercream (bottom) and cream cheese buttercream (top). The icing is colored to create an ombré effect going from darker to lighter, bottom to top. The bottom shell border and vines are piped with dark purple buttercream; the leaves are piped using neon green buttercream. I sprinkled some gold sanding sugar on top just to add some sparkle.

This cake was certainly a fun one to make….hope you had a terrific 7th birthday, Gianna!
