Happy birthday princess!

This weekend we celebrated our princess' 4th birthday. At her request, she had a castle cake and an ocean theme.

I have a lot of respect for cake chefs... I worked my butt off but the cake was a disaster! I used this fondant recipe and this buttermilk frosting. It turned out delicious and I got lots of compliments on the taste, but all I could see were the mistakes I made.

But all that matters in the end is that she loved it.


  1. Congrats to your sweet girl! :-)

  2. Holy smokes - the castle cake looks pretty darn amazing. Happy birthday to your eldest and fantastic job crafy mom!

  3. Happy birthday!! It looks like a wonderfully fun celebration.
