Princess Storybook Cake

Well hello all,

My latest cake is for one of my favorite girls in the world.  My third daughter, Thandie.  She turns three next month (and will actually get another small cake then) but since we went on a mini vacation surrounded by family, we celebrated her birthday then.  She is a huge Minnie Mouse and Disney Princess fan, so for this cake we went with a princess storybook cake.  I love storybooks and so does she (though she is not really reading yet) so I thought it would be fun. 

Even after the traveling disaster (her brother almost ruined it… he smashed the box holding the cake with his legs and took some butter cream with it… had to fix it but it was fixed and finished nicely…)

The cake is chocolate with vanilla buttercream and butter cream fondant.  All the piping is done with lavender colored chocolate.  The princess figurines are not edible.  She loved the cake and I can’t wait for the next one.
