Rebecca asked me to do a Cinderella cake for her daughter's birthday this weekend. Already having a pretty large sheet cake order for a wedding due, I didn't know if I would be able to squeeze that in, but Rebecca ensured me that she just needed an 8" cake and it could be "simple." I love simple.
After brainstorming and looking at a bunch of cakes online, I decided to browse the toy store. I knew I wouldn't have time to sculpt much and that's not really my thing anyway. I am way too practical to sculpt a bunch of stuff out of gum paste or fondant because where does that go when the cake is consumed? In the trash...or the daring might even consume it (it IS edible). But especially for kids cakes, I really prefer toys as toppers.
So, I was delighted when I came across a little Cinderella boutique at Amazon.com. I thought this would be the perfect cake topper and what little girl wouldn't be DELIGHTED with seeing this on a CAKE?!!
I hope the birthday girl had a FABULOUS birthday and felt like the little princess she was!
