Make a Princess-Themed Birthday Celebration a Royal Event!

March 3rd, 2011 by Alexandra Nelson

I think most every little girl, including myself, has had a princess themed birthday party at some point in her life. Although I was only four when I had my party, I can still remember my favorite part, the castle cake! The Prettiest Princess Cake will make your little girl feel like the princess she is and will be something she remembers for a very long time.

Prettiest Princess Cake This cake is quite simple to make and can be designed with your little girl’s favorite colors and flavors in mind. Using your favorite 2-layer cake mix or homemade recipe, bake according to instructions in two 8 x 2” round pans.

Once cooled, use the cake dividing set to divide cake into eighths. Ice cake smooth with buttercream icing in preferred color and place candy sticks around cake.

Using tip 5 and a secondary color of buttercream icing, pipe in doors and windows (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch), then outline windows and doors, and add dots with tip 3. Pipe hearts in secondary color using tip 5.

For an added personal touch, insert the princess photo cake topper using your little girl’s picture and arrange princess royal icing decorations around the cake. Finally, place the finished cake on the princess cake stand.

For the day of the party, ask each little girl to dress as her favorite princess. During the party you can have a princess fashion shoot with each little girl modeling her ensemble.

Later, a fun activity each little girl will love is to make her own piece of edible jewelry with the Disney Princess™ Candy Necklace Kit. At the end of the day, send each girl home with a princess party bag filled with cookies cut from the 3 piece princess cookie cutter set and decorated with Sprinkles from the Disney Princess™ sprinkle set.
