Princess Birthday Cake

Scripture to Live By:
Isaiah 41:10
Fear thou not; for I am with thee;  be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen the; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold the with the right hand of my righteousness.

Psalm 34:4
I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

I made this cake for a precious little four year old girl in my Awana Club.  She is so precious.  When I ask what color she would like.  She said pink was her favorite.  I was also told that she liked Princess things.  I was also told to make her cake part chocolate and the other part yellow.  

So I made her a rectangle cake 12 x 18 inches.  She here for instructions and needed supplies. 
Once the cake was baked and cool down and was placed on a cake plate I began to decorate it with pink frosting.  For recipe for frosting is as follows:

4 cups of powered sugar
2 sticks margarine
1 cup of Crisco
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/3 cup evaporated milk
Beat at high speed with mixer for approximately 10 minutes.

For this cake I tripled it. (Any let over frosting, I use to decorate cupcakes.)



I colored 2/3 of the frosting pink, and started frosting the cake.  I frost the top of my cake first.  Some books say to frost sides first.  Which ever your prefer will work.  





One the cake is frosted and as smooth as I can get it I start putting the borders on the cake. 


After all borders are on the cake I then write the greeting on the cake.  This little four year old girl can read her name in print.  So I decided to print the greeting so she could read it on her cake.  



I doubled the printing.  First in pink and then I went over it in white. This made it stand out more.  


I put little white dots around the top border.

I went to the Dollar Tree and got her 4 Princess figurines.  (One for each year.)



I then took the white frosting I had left and mixed up some darker pink frosting as well as some yellow and some green to make flowers and leaves from.  


I made some pink daisies with yellow centers using #103 rose tip to make the petals and a writing tip #3 for the center.


My frosting is butter cream frosting and it never gets hard, so when I make flowers I put them in the freezer to freeze them and work placing them on the cake while frozen.  
Next I add the leaves directly onto the cake, using a leaf tube.  



Cake finished?  No not yet. 



 I wanted to make it just a little more special for this little one, so I added some edible pearls, to outline her greeting and the top border of her cake.  I used tweezers to place the pearls in place.  


Now her cake is finished and it is ready to deliver it.  Oh, I hope she likes it.  





 I am so thankful to have the privilege to make cakes for others and perhaps give them a blessing.


Blessings to you dear friends,

  3. This is a cute idea. I really like the way you outlined the words and added the pearls. My daughter would love this. Her birthday is a long way off, but will keep this in mind when I do her cake. Thanks for the inspiration!
