If you are planning a party with a fairy theme, a fairy cake or a collection of fairy cupcakes will be the perfect dessert. You can purchase cakes and cupcakes that match your theme at your local bakery, but they will be expensive.

    Fairy Doll Cake

  1. 1

    Make the cake batter according to the cake mix instructions. The flavour cake is up to you. Preheat your oven according to package directions. Grease the inside of a large glass mixing bowl using non-stick cooking spray.

  2. 2

    Pour your cake batter into the greased bowl. Bake your cake in the oven for 30 to 45 minutes. Your cake is done when a wooden skewer comes out clean when inserted in the centre. Allow your cake to cool completely.

  3. 3

    Turn the bowl over and transfer your cake to a serving platter. You want the flat side down and the rounded side up.

  4. 4

    Insert the legs of a plastic doll into the centre of the cake. The cake is going to be her skirt. If you find she is too tall for the cake, you can cut her legs off as needed. You want her inserted into the cake up to her waist.

  5. 5

    Frost the cake with coloured buttercream frosting. The colour you use is up to you. You can either put on doll clothes on her top or you can use frosting to create a dress top. Decorate the skirt and top as desired using frosting, candy and decorating sugars.

  6. 6

    Draw a pair of fairy wings on a piece of poster board and cut them out. Decorate the wings with paints and glitter. Glue the wings to the centre of the doll's back to finish the cake.

    Small Fairy Cupcakes

  1. 1

    Prepare a yellow cake mix according to package directions, including preheating your oven to the indicated temperature.

  2. 2

    Place one cupcake paper into each 12 to 18 hole in a muffin pan. The number of cupcake papers depends on the yield of your store-bought cake mix. Fill your cupcake papers with the cake batter and bake according to package directions. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely.

  3. 3

    Remove the cakes from the muffin tin. Use a serrated knife to cut the top off each cake. Then cut the tops in half.

  4. 4

    Use buttercream frosting to frost the top of the cupcakes that are still in the papers. Place the two cake top halves on top of one of the frosted cupcakes. Place them so that the smooth side of the halves point inward. Angle them so they look like fairy wings.

  5. 5

    Sprinkle the tops of the cupcakes with decorating sugar to finish.
