Ballerina Cakes – Creating a Stunning Cake for the Dancer in Your Life

Ballet is not only considered to be a type of dance, but an art form. It is created by moving the body in various ways. The individual that performs ballet uses the movements to express their thoughts, the emotions that they are experiencing and/or to tell a particular story. Ballet combines the components of specially designed costumes, stage lighting and even stage design in order to enhance that which is being expressed.

On this page, we have put up numerous pictures of ballet cake designs for you to enjoy. If you happen to be looking for a bit of ballet-themed inspiration on how you might design and create your "prima" cake for the dancer in your life, take a breather and review these images.

Silver & Pink Ballet Cake

My daughter takes ballet classes and she is ballerina crazy. Her request for a birthday cake was to have a ballerina theme but not the usual one where you stick a doll in the middle and use cake to make a dress.

I baked a two-layer vanilla sponge cake and decorated it with water-based pink icing. I used thinly rolled Marzipan to make the cut-outs that spells out her name. I found the ballerinas at a party decoration shop.

You may create cupcakes, sheet cakes, cakes that resemble ballet shoes, a tutu cake, a round cake, a topsy turvy cake, and a multi-tiered cake that is either round or square – or, a unique combination of both. While these types of cakes may be any color, most individuals elect to create cakes that are various shades of pink. White, purple, and yellow are also commonly used colors. If you want to create a beautiful ballerina dessert, the guidelines that follow might assist you:

Step 3: Then you'll need to roll your white fondant out. Take care to insure it's large enough to cover your cake completely.

Step 4: Roll out some more pink fondant and create a strip that may be used to cover the bottom section of your cake.

Step 6: Place the ceramic ballerinas on the cake tray in a decorative manner.
