Isn't this a beautiful cake? We had a great time figuring out how to make the drapes even, deep and pretty. The cake was a challenge, but we did it :) at Carrie's Cakes in Sandy, Utah. Hooray!!!! Hope the Bride and Groom loved it as much as we did!

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!
