My friend’s daughter turned 3. Like many little girls her age, C is all about princesses right now. My friend asked if I could bake C a birthday cake, specifically a princess themed cake. I’m not one to turn down a chance to practice so of course I said yes. This is me making my first princess cake!
So remember, it began with this: Hmmm
Next was to bake the cakes:
Next I did some slicing:
And then some whipping:
Yes, it is a strawberry shortcake princess cake.
Assembly time. Cake, whipped cream, strawberries, repeat.
Now the fun part – Decorating!
So Barbie goes in the middle. Pink whipped cream icing all around:
Using my piping bag and a small star tip, I covered the bodice of the doll and added some blue trim:
Some more blue trim and silver balls for some shine:
And then you have a princess cake!!
I won’t forget how wide C’s eyes became as I bought the cake to the table. She was so excited. She knew it was a Barbie immediately and loved the crown. She was amazed that she could eat cake and get a doll too. She asked for seconds so I think my cake was a hit.
Happy Birthday Princess C!! =)
