101 Dalmatians Cake
- Your favorite cake recipe (or store-bought cake)
- BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:
- 8 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 Tbsp heavy cream
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- Black fondant
- Circle cookie cutters in various sizes
- Red ribbon
Follow the instructions for your favorite cake recipe. We baked this cake in a 6” pan. Let cool while you prepare the buttercream frosting.
In a bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with a whisk attachment, beat butter and vanilla on medium-high speed until combined. Add powdered sugar and mix until combined. Add heavy cream and mix until combined.
Frost your cake. We recommend chilling the cake in the fridge before applying a crumb-coat. Chill again for 15-20 minutes before applying the final coat of buttercream frosting.
Use circle cookie cutters to cut out various sizes of polka-dots. Carefully place onto the cake.
Wrap a red ribbon around the base of the cake and press gently into the buttercream.
