So I was all ready to build Isabelle a castle cake for her birthday - when she tells me firmly that she wants a princess crown cake. Hmmm... ok - change of plans then. I was feeling particularly pressured to produce a stellar cake because a. she's five and b. since we just got back the day before her birthday and I forgot that many bakeries are closed on Mondays, I ended up showing up to her class with No Frills-purchased cupcakes (hang head in shame).
This was the final result: top was lemon, middle was chocolate and bottom was vanilla. The crown was fondant - this was Crown 3.0 after the first two versions didn't do very well.
