OK - so one of my daughter's teachers asked me to make a cake for one of the other teachers for her birthday next monday. They are throwing a surprise princess for a day theme birthday (short party as it is at school) but she is absolutely CRAZY about OU! She is not a girly girl - very into sports and such, so I thought I could do an OU themed cake, but throw in the princess thing for kicks and giggles -the theme is more about catering to her and her being special for a day, not being princess-like. I am having trouble picturing how to incorporate these two. This is a free cake and I have other things going on and really don't want to do a bunch of figures and things that will take a zillion hours, but I still want it to be special.
I know when I posted it may have been a slow time, so I'm hoping maybe more people are on now?
Try to mesh the two together. Take the typical princess but make her more like a tom boy. You know pink fluffy dress but playing football. You know? Try to poke fun at the fact that a princess like sports compared to other girly things like flowers and butterflies.
haha - that's what I thought about when she first told me - I just wasn't sure if I wanted to have to deal with making a figure - thought I'd try to come up with an idea for a design without one too I found out they are going to make her wear a crown and boa all day - it will be hilarious!
