Amazing Castle Cake!
This is my first attempt at a castle cake. I did a lot of research to be sure to do my best. My daughter loves pink and to dress up like a princess so it was a no brainer to make a castle cake for her birthday. I kept it a secret and when she finally saw it for the first time she was both excited and thrilled. If her squeals didn't make all of my hard work worth it all, the look on her face sure sealed the deal. Yes it was time consuming but well worth it.

Another fun activity to use for the party is to create a princess beauty salon. Of course, this is best for an all girl party. Have some adults to help you in the princess beauty salon. Have someone available to create beautiful hairstyles. Another adult can add a bit of makeup to make the little girls feel like princesses. Someone else can paint fingernails. Make sure to have several colors of nail polish on hand so the girls can enjoy picking out a color that they like. Once all the little girls are beautified you can crown them each with a tiara and a spritz of sweet-smelling perfume.Coloring Time
