"Ummm, I want it pink and purple and yellow and blue and green and red... umm, with a castle and princess Jasmine and Ariel...", "and don't forget the castle".
Ok, so I took a couple days to ponder on that monstrosity, her mom found an Ariel and a Belle, no Jasmine to the ends of the earth... The cake itself was a marbled chocolate with vanilla sprinkle cake, and I think my hand is still cramped from all the over-piping I did on the sides. However, in the eyes of an 8 year old girl, it was clearly a masterpiece, and well worth the fuss if you ask me :)
Happy Birthday Ailish!
