It’s been a really busy day here, Miss A has reached 3 years old. So I’ve been busy preparing for a little tea party. I thought I would share the cake that I made for her. She absolutely loves Tangled the movie (based on Rapunzel) and so I really wanted to make something that was loosely based on it. It was so simple, bit of a cheat really, but what do you think?
It was made up of 12 cupcakes with lilac wrap-arounds and (Tangled) illustrated rice paper discs. Butter icing, I tried to make purple icing by adding blue and red food colouring, but it turned out brown?! I also really wanted to pipe this, but unfortunately the piping nozzle I ordered didn’t arrive on time. I was gutted as Christy of Chris Tea And Cakes, who makes the most impressive cakes, had given me so many tips I wanted to try out.
I also sprinkled them with white chocolate stars. The stars play an important part in the movie, as she maps them, in order to work out what the strange lights are that she sees each year on her birthday.
I then pushed 8 ring doughnuts onto a kitchen roll holder for the tower. The roof being a party hat, which Miss N painted for me.
She loved it, I felt so pleased when she exclaimed “WOW!” when she first saw it, even with the dodgy icing! My VERY easy Tangled Birthday cake.
