Can you even believe how beautiful and fun and magical it is?! I mean, I have a WAND now. MAGIC.
All thanks to wonderful Melissa, of Melissa Rose Design for being so patient and understanding and talented and for just getting me. She does real live magic.
Obviously, the only way to celebrate such an exciting development here is with cake. Sweet, fluffy, colorful, confetti and star covered, garland draped, I-have-my-very-own-castle-now cake (I used this easy yellow cake recipe, paired with my favorite vanilla buttercream.
I kept the cake pretty simple by covering it with a bit of an ombre of pink and blue frosting on the sides, with white on top. Next, I used an offset spatula to swirl the top of the cake, which I decorated with a spiral of ink, blue, white, and silver sprinkle, and little golden stars. For the garland on the side of the cake, all I did was pipe a random swag of blue frosting around. The garland goes all the way around the cake, and I used a plain writing tip. Don’t worry about making each swag of the garland exactly the same – part of what makes this so charming is having them all be different sizes. Finally, I added large pink, blue, and white sugar pearls, and more golden stars to the garland. Easy peasy!
There will still be some changes going on behind the scenes for a bit, so thank you for your patience. If you notice anything is slightly off or wonky, please be sure to let me know, so I can address it. Otherwise, enjoy!
