A Princess Birthday Cake fit for a four year old Princess

Sophia had a birthday party this weekend. She told me exactly which friends she wanted to invite. At almost four years old she told me the names of Fourteen kids she wanted there. I thought that was pretty impressive that she could recall all those names. So, we had to bake and frost a cake. She chose the Princess idea and I thought we could do that, just needed to buy the doll top and used my Pampered Chef large mixing bowl. I baked the cake dress form in the bowl at 350 degrees for about 55 minutes and the other round cake pan for the normal round cake time.

I demonstrated that Sophia could spread the bright pink icing with a butter knife. Sophia was so excited to spread the icing on the slightly frozen cake so it wouldn't crumble.

Here I am helping her smooth the icing around a bit.

Here, I asked her what else was needed. Flowers of course was the answer!

So I taught Sophia on wax paper how to make icing flowers with the Wilton icing bags and tip set I had. She thought the best part was eating the mistakes. Oops, she licked her fingers.

Here is the finished cake.

Sophia was so proud of her Princess Cake we made.
