Twirly Girl loves pink and purple...and princesses.
So, a pink princess dress on the outside...
...and purple stripes on the inside.
The Historian decided this slice needed a little extra frosting for the birthday girl.
The kids and I had fun decorating together.
To make the purple stripes, I used the technique found here http://www.azcookbook.com/zebra-cake/ for making a zebra cake. I just colored half the batter purple and decided not to make as many stripes.
This is what it looked like after I trimmed the top and edges:
We just wanted a small cake, so I cut some small circles out of the cake, stacked them, and carved them down to make the skirt for the princess. (The doll is a mermaid toy that my girls already had that we washed to use in the cake.)
