Princess Cake

My daughters birthday was in January. I decided I wanted to make her a Princess Cake. I saw the picture of a princess cake on the Family Fun website. Unfortunately, there were no real clear directions on how to make the cake. So after throwing away about 6 cakes I finally found the best way to make this cake.

I made two nine inch rounds made of chocolate. Then I made a white cake and put it in a smaller size dome cake. I assembled them together with a pudding/cream cheeses recipe I made up. I stuck Barbie down in the center and put pieces of a failed cake all around her to give her stability. Voila, there is the first picture. Then after trying my hand with the pastry bag I fashioned a dress out of 'stars'. I saw this type of "doll dress" on Martha Stewart's website. (Again, there was no real directions, at least that I had any kind of success with).

It was a challenge that I enjoyed. If anyone attempts this I would love to hear about your adventures.

Pudding Filling

1 box of chocolate pudding
1 cup of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 oz. cream cheese
2/3 cup brown sugar

Cream the cheese and sugar together. Blend well and add the vanilla and milk. Finally add the pudding mix. Chill until set.

Oh my, I had totally forgotten about those cakes. My mom made one for me once and then all of the neighborhood mommies asked her to make them for their daughters. I think she baked it in a bowl.


Hello from Canada! This is a dream come true for girls of any age. Heck, I'd love a treat like this. Have I told you that 'cake' is my favorite food group?

It was a lot of fun to make. Unfortantely we ended up throwing a quarter of it away. We also gave quite a bit away. I had to because it was calling me, day and night, like a siren. he he. And I didnt really go into detail in the post but we actually celebrated both my daughters birthdays in January. So in fact there were two "Princess's" around here. Yikes. Lots'o'sugar.
