Before I started taking cake decorating classes I thought it'd be a good idea to make a tiered cake for a princess birthday party... I'm glad I did because I learned a ton! I had grand fairytale ideas of sugar gems and fancy piping crowned with an intricate royal icing tiara... I created a beautiful Sleeping-Beauty-inspired tiara template which didn't end up working out due to runny royal icing. I'm proud of my attempt despite the tacky plastic princess costume piece.
