I made this princess cake for four year Reagan’s Birthday party. When I asked her mom about Reagan’s interests, there were so many to choose from. Her mom told me she liked Paris, Despicable Me, Megamind, Backyardigans, Heffalump from Winnie the Pooh, and of course, princesses! Well, I have to admit that I was very excited to make a princess cake for Reagan. I mean, I am a very girly girl and my favorite color is pink, as is Reagan’s. So, when the possibility arose to make a whimsical cake with a princess theme, I jumped on it!!
When I planned out the design for this cake, I knew I wanted to have a crown cake topper and wanted to put her age on it as well. I knew that the crown would be perfect in pink and I accented it with an edible heart sprinkle. This was made out of fondant.
As I started to make the cake, I realized that I wanted to keep the princess topper, but I wanted to incorporate flowers, stripes and polka dots as well. Polka dots are so fun!!
And what princess cake is complete without a magic wand?!
I also made coordinating cupcakes for Reagan to take into school and share with her friends and classmates. I decorated the vanilla cupcakes with molded white chocolate flowers in pink and purple.
When I delivered the cake and saw Reagan’s face light up it was so exciting. She is such a cute little girl and she loved the cake topper. She pointed to it and told her mom that she wanted eat that piece. I love to see happy faces when I deliver my cakes because it makes me happy, too!!!
