For the cake:

  • Your favorite cake mix or recipe (flavor of your choice)
  • Eggs, oil, and water (as per cake mix instructions)

For the buttercream frosting:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pink and purple gel food coloring

For the decorations:

  • Edible flowers (available at baking supply stores or online)
  • Edible gold pearls or sprinkles
  • Purple and pink fondant
  • Edible gold dust (optional, for an extra touch of magic)


Step 1: Bake the Cake:

   - Preheat your oven as per the cake mix or recipe instructions.

   - Prepare the cake batter according to the package instructions or your chosen recipe.

   - Grease and line your cake pans with parchment paper, and pour the batter evenly into the pans.

   - Bake the cakes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

   - Allow the cakes to cool completely before frosting.

Step 2: Make the Buttercream Frosting:

   - In a large mixing bowl, beat 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 separate bowls and tint one portion with pink food coloring and the other with purple. Adjust the color intensity to your preference.

Step 3: Assemble the Cake:

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

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

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

   - Continue alternating layers and frostings until you've used all the cake layers.

Step 4: Create Rapunzel's Tower:

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

   - Place the strips vertically around the top of the cake to resemble Rapunzel's tower.

   - Roll out pink fondant and shape it into Rapunzel's flowing hair, cascading down the side of the cake.

Step 5: Add Magical Details:

   - Arrange edible flowers and edible gold pearls on the cake to create a whimsical garden-like effect.

   - If desired, brush the tower and hair with edible gold dust to give them a shimmery touch.

Step 6: Unleash the Magic:

   - Stand back and admire your enchanting Rapunzel Cake, fit for a princess!
