Rosebud turned 3 on Saturday! I will blog that tomorrow, but here is the cake.
I found my inspiration here at family.go.com
I baked an 8 inch layer and a 10 inch layer with 2 cake mixes between the two of them. Dang, those Wilton pans rock.
I leveled them and put a layer of filling in each.
Then I frosted and stacked the tiers.
I didn't have access to the large round sprinkles in the example and couldn't find a candy close enough. So I used giant conversation hearts...
...and put a crown on top.
Oh yeah, I also did 2 two-layer 6 inch satellite cakes for princesses to sit on.
It was more work than I expected it to be, but I was pleased enough with the results.
