I'll Try Anything Once

Ok, maybe not anything, but I got your attention.  Eliza, my daughter who just turned three, likes to watch you tube videos of nursery songs and a princess cake tutorial caught her eye.  So we watched it a few hundred times, why do they never get sick of watching the same thing OVER and OVER. You can find it here:
Anyway, I felt like I should give it a try for her party.  We just had a small party with friends from home because we were camping on her actual birthday.  So I gave the cake a try.  Now, I am not a baker and they start the tutorial with the cakes already made.  You need to make 3- 8 inch rounds and due to some issues getting them to come nicely out of the pans- I had to make 5.  Now at this point I was tempted to give up and head over to Walmart, but luckily my princess was taking a nap and I had some time.  You also need to bake a cake in a glass, oven safe bowl to get the shape for the top of the skirt.  So here are some pictures:

And the best part...the real PRINCESS was happy!!

  3. so fun it has been a while since I saw one of these with Princess turning 3 next month we may just try to make one of these for her

  4. Wow! That cake is impressive. I don't think I could have pulled that off! I am sure it was a huge hit with your princess. Love it.
