2 weeks ago my daughter turned 2 years old! I can hardly believe it! My little beauty is quite princess obsessed, so we had a princess themed party!
The kids loved these Princess (or Prince) wands! Each one I made myself!
It cost about $5 all together at Michael’s for the supplies to make 12. I bought 2 sheets of foam – pink & green. And then a package of dowels. I cut out star shapes, using a star cookie cutter as my stencil. I hot glued the dowel to a star & then glued the other side on. I added some curling ribbon as a little extra flair. So cute!
One of my next crafty purchases is going to be a Silhouette or Cricut machine, so that I can make something as cute as this:
Until then, I counted on Charlie Thyme to help me out. She made me this beautiful banner & a dozen smaller Princess dresses to match. It’s now hanging in my Princess’ room as a decoration!
Finally and of course, the Grand Finale!
Since I was little I always remember seeing these doll cakes & I love them. I thought & thought & thought about this cake. And guess what? I still AM! It was delicious & looked beautiful, if I say so myself!
Looks hard right? NOPE! I used The Pampered Chef’s Classic Batter Bowl to make the cake into the dress form. Two boxes of mix & their ingredients work fine. Oh and here’s a little tip: Use milk in place of the water in the cake recipe. I got the Doll at Walmart on clearance for $7 and because she was slightly longer than the batter bowl cake, I needed to make a little stand for her. So you will need one more box of cake mix to make that as well. Finally to decorate it, I used the Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator. I’ve never been a very good cake decorator. However, this tool was so easy to use and cleaned up really easy. I’d say if you are a novice baker, you could definitely try this out!
