Step 1: Bake the Cake:

   - Preheat your oven according to the cake mix or recipe instructions.

   - Prepare the cake batter as directed on the package or in your chosen recipe.

   - Grease and line your cake pans with parchment paper.

   - Pour the batter into the pans and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

   - Let the cakes cool completely before frosting.

Step 2: Make the Buttercream Frosting:

   - In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until smooth and creamy.

   - Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until the frosting is light and fluffy.

   - Divide the frosting into two bowls and tint one portion with green food coloring and the other with yellow. Adjust the color intensity as desired.

Step 3: Assemble the Cake:

   - Place one cake layer on a cake stand or serving platter.

   - Spread a layer of green buttercream frosting on top of the cake layer.

   - Carefully stack the second cake layer on top and cover it with yellow buttercream frosting.

   - Continue alternating layers and frostings until all the cake layers are used.

Step 4: Create Tiana's Dress:

   - Roll out white fondant and cut it into thin strips.

   - Place the strips vertically around the bottom of the cake to resemble Tiana's dress.

   - Roll out green fondant and shape it into Tiana's lily pad dress accent, placing it on the top of the cake.

Step 5: Add Magical Details:

   - Roll out yellow fondant and cut it into small circles to create Tiana's buttons and accents on her dress.

   - Adorn the cake with edible gold pearls or sprinkles for a touch of regal glamour.
