(re)capturing the fun & wonder

Princess cake. Yuck.


This cake is store-bought. I think if I were ever to try to make something like this it would end up lopsided and drippy.

All the kids ooh’d and ah’d when I brought it out. Who could resist real, live purple orchids on a green cake? Green candles? How decadent!

The only problem was everything in the cake. 80% of the kids didn’t like the marzipan. 50% didn’t like the chocolate cake. And 90% didn’t like the cream filling.

Exactly ONE child at that party thought the cake was delicious!

I was lucky I’d filled them all up on pizza and juice, and there was a mountain of gifts to open.
