This weekend we had a combination Father’s Day/Andrea’s Birthday celebration at my mom’s house. My sister (who was turning 35, I might add) requested a princess cake. What, might you ask, is a princess cake. Good question. After making Alex’s birthday cake in the shape of a dinosaur, I thought that maybe I should make Andrea’s cake in the shape of a princess, just for fun, but in the end I opted on this design, fit for a princess.
The cake is Dunkin Hines chocolate fudge (Shocker, I know! But they were on sale and they turn out so well when you really beat the batter and get it all fluffy!) and the frosting is this creamy chocolate recipe. The center is this amazingly delicious fluffy peanut butter frosting recipe. The sparkly stars matched the princess’s tiara and it was so good I had to leave the leftovers behind at my mom’s otherwise I would have eaten it for breakfast. And lunch. Yum.
Happy birthday Andrea! I hope that your princess cake was everything you wished for.
