Ever since my daughter's first birthday cake, I seemed to have claimed the title of family cake baker... For her very special 5th Birthday party with all of her friends, my niece decided that she wanted a "Princess Tiana Tea Party." My sister-in-law asked me if I would consider making her a special cake to go with the theme. I agreed under the condition that I could just do something and show up with it with no direction from her, my brother, or the birthday girl. What I came up with was this:
I surprised her with this teapot cake, which include some of Princess Tiana's favorite colors and lots of edible glitter! The cake itself was a strawberry cake, made with fresh cut strawberries, and a light cream cheese filling. It's covered in fondant, and all of the flowers and embellishments were hand made. I even make the candle holders which were purple gumpaste rosebuds.
