Princess and the Pea Weecakies
Do you know the story of the Princess and the Pea? It is an Anderson fairy tale-as in Hans Christian. I love fairy tales. Anyway, the story tells of a Prince who was looking for a true Princess to marry. He looked high and low, and left and right and, well, you can read the complete story for yourself at: http://childhoodreading.com/?p=5. The true Princess was actually kept awake all night by a silly little pea under a stack of fluffy mattresses and feather beds! So, a couple of weeks ago a sweet young mother contacted me needing Princess and the Pea-head Weecakies for her daughter's first birthday celebration and this is what I came up with. Aren't they cute? I actually had a couple of sleepless nights myself thinking of ways to make a pea-head cute. These Weecakies are deep chocolate cake truffles dipped in green Callebaut chocolate, topped with a green chocolate hat, chocolate tendril and a white flower. Happy piped faces and rosy cheeks round out the design. What a fun theme for a child's birthday party. Happy Happy birthday little Princess!
