Let's get started!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the three princess cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cake flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla, and lemon extract until doubled in volume, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, milk and buttermilk.
  5. Mix the flour mixture into the egg mixture until well combined, then whisk in the milk mixture until smooth. 
  6. Fill each pan two-thirds full with batter (using about 3 ½ cups per pan) and bake until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.
  7. Let cool in the pans for 15 minutes, then turn out of the pans onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Level off the top of each cake with a cake leveler or a large serrated knife.
  9. Stack the cakes in ascending order, leveled side down, with a thin layer of frosting in between the cake layers.
  10. Crumb coat the cake and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.

For Elsa:

  1. On a flat surface sprinkled with powdered sugar, roll out the medium blue fondant to a 16-inch round,1/4 inch thick.

  3. Roll out the light blue fondant and place the triangle on top and cut the same shape using a knife.
  4. Place the light blue triangle on the cake and gently press the seams together.
  5. Using the medium blue fondant, roll out a rectangle and cut a "V" shape for the front and two "U" shapes for her arms. Place a small light blue triangle on her chest. Cover the arms with the medium blue fondant.
