Princess Cake


My first attempt turned out pretty well, considering I gave myself a few hours to assemble the girl together. 

Her hair and accessories is something similar to my style, as my hair always looks like I'm going to the gym, I wear bold pretty dresses, combined with quirky jewellery!

Made for Barbie's Pink Party, not officially Barbie's birthday, but a great excuse for a massive play date, and get the kids hyped up after school. Also I told the girls it was Barbie's sister on the cake, I couldn't find a blonde doll!

The little girls loved the cake, because it was pink, had smarties all over it, and she was reaching out to them! 

Everything was pink themed:

Pink ham in sandwiches
Pink bunting
Pink fairy lights
Princess/pink dresses
Each child bought their Barbie.
Red (slightly pink) grapes
Pink icing and sprinkles to decorate fairy cakes, can't find a photo because they got eaten so quickly!

The filling was a rich brown sugary sponge cake, then covered in royal pink icing, edible gold, and pink smarties.
Since this party had a pink theme, I decided to donate a lovely portion of the costs to Cancer Research UK for breast cancer awareness.

I love it, and would do it all over again. Next time she will look even more stunning, with a well planned out dress and accessories.

My creative and inspirational hands are ready for the next project, and most definitely a cake decorating course.
