March 2010: My niece Becca wanted to have a princess party for her 3rd birthday. What a princess party it was! Everyone dressed up as a princess (or prince!) including the adults! I pulled out an old bridesmaid dress and my mother-in-law wore my old prom dress! How fun!
I went with a simple, but cute design for Becca’s cake. I used gum paste for the crown on top of the cake. Becca was a little nervous about the candles, but I think she enjoyed the cake overall.
This cake was one of the first where I started experimenting with the Betty Crocker Gluten-free cake mixes. We tried making the vanilla mix into a banana cake. Turned out pretty well for gluten-free!
