I cannot believe that our little Miss Tippy Tail has turned three. Yes, on August 28 our Emma turned a big three years old! It was a very tough decision for her to decide on her theme. We went from Backyardigans to Dora to Cinderella, to Disney Princesses. Finally the decision was made for the Disney Princess Party. As you all know we have been living in our Motor Home in Oceanside while our house is going through its makeover. We decided that Grandma's house would be the best place for the party since everyone loves going to her house and everyone in our family lives near her. We drove up on Saturday so I could make the cake. With a princess party you need a castle cake. I had spent the week looking on line for ideas on a castle cake. I finally narrowed it down to three and took ideas from all of them. I bought a new pan but when I got to my Mom's house I discovered that the pan didn't fit in the oven! So I had to improvise and use several cake pans which made making the cake take hours as I had to make each cake one at a time and then wait for it to cool. I used 4 cake mixes! There were moments when I didn't think it was going to work out, but although no professional looking it turned out to be a really fun cake and Miss Tippy Tail thought it was the most beautiful cake in the whole world and that is what counted the most!
