Maleficent Cake

This Splendid hand-painted Maleficent cake is two tiers.

This wonderful cake was made by Silvana Ribeiro Cake Designer

Firstly, the bottom tier is a scene with large thorns grown up around the castle. I like the way the painting is layered. 

The castle wall is in the background the furthest away and is painted gray. Finally the outer layer of thorns is painted black to show that it is the closest. 

Next, the top tier is offset toward the back. Up against it rests a portrait of Maleficent painted onto a piece of fondant.

Disney Princess and Villain Cookies

These wonderful Disney Princess and Villain Cookies were made by Punky’s Sugar Shoppe. These cookies feature Belle, Hades, Maleficent, Ursula, Ariel, and Rapunzel with Pascal.

Disney Princess Cookies

One thing I really like about Tara’s cookies is that she uses a halo effect around her characters. The background color around each character is light and the edges are darker. This makes the characters stand out more.

Disney Villain Cookies

I’ve always thought that one of the things that makes Disney’s animated films so popular is that they have great villains.  I’m not the least bit surprised that Maleficent has been featured in her own movies because she was such a dynamic character in Sleeping Beauty. I’d love to see Disney do something similar with Ursula.  I think she is another fascinating character who could carry her own movie.

Disney Villain Cakesicles

These wonderful Disney Villain Cakesicles were made by Giovanna Favarati.  They feature the Evil Queen, Maleficent, Cruella de Vil and Ursula. The detail on each villain is wonderful. Ursula has squid tentacles, Cruella is wearing a fur coat, Maleficent is wearing her horned headpiece, and the Queen has a crown.  These are such terrific cakesicles. I’m always amazed that sweet treats like these aren’t sold at the Disney theme parks.

Ursula Cake

During this global pandemic, MADL créations has switched to teaching private masterclasses online.  For these classes, they’ve created four of the most beautiful Disney Villain cakes I’ve ever seen.  Here is their .  The detail on the coral underneath Ursula is simply amazing.  It is one of the most creative uses I’ve ever seen for a geode cake.


Maleficent Cake

I love the character design of Maleficent. She looks younger then you usually see her.  My favorite part of this cake is plants.  Notice that the branch which is blooming is painted.  But the second branch is 3-D and growing up form the bottom tier. That is such a neat visual effect.


Cruella de Vil Cake

What’s black, and white and red all over? This stunning Cruella de Vil cake!  Having the tiers sold red with Dalmation fur wrapping around it is a such a great idea.  I also really like the center image of Cruella. While all four cakes in this set are stunning, this is my favorite of the bunch.


Evil Queen Cake

Last but not least is the Evil Queen. This Queen is in the middle with a mirror. On top is her throne with an apple on it.  I love the metaphor of her throne about to topple because her rule and life are both about to end. I really like the wall paper used on some of the tiers.  The bottom wallpaper would look perfect in the Haunted Mansion.
