I wanted to do a cake that somehow represented all of the princesses, without actually having to mold each one. So I decided to take something that represents each one and make that instead.
And well, I'm an animator, so instead of printing each princess image and sticking them on I thought I'd draw little sketches of them, and make them like vintage cameos.
And have them going all around the cake. The birthday girl's favourite princess is Mulan, so I put her picture on top.
The cake itself is a victoria sponge with pink almond buttercream icing.
Here's a view of the top. Hopefully people can have fun guessing which thing belongs to which princess! ^_^
