Princess Pillow Cake with Edible Tiara

Featured
Here is an adorable princess pillow cake with an edible royal icing tiara that any birthday girl would cherish.

I have made this cake for my niece and everyone loves it, so i thought i would share it here with you.
In terms of difficulty ,as long as you are familiar with fondant and royal icing, this shouldn't  be too big of a challenge.

Make tiara at least 1 day  ahead of time.*very fragile, you will probably want to make one or two extras. Make royal icing recipe. Tape tiara template to a curved jar or can. Tape a piece of wax  paper over it so that you can pipe on to it. Use a 2 or 3 round tip and trace the template.*make sure you  don’t have too much empty  space on the tiara or it will fall apart. At this point you can add  edible drageesor these little fake diamonds that I found at my local craft store.(just make sure that no one eats the tiara if you use the craft store diamonds) Let dry overnight. Next day peel the wax paper from the tiara very carefully. Store in a dry safe container until ready to use.

This is a tiara that you can print.Make sure you tape wax paper over it so you can reuse it and to ensure it comes off clean when dry.
