Once upon a time...
Oh how things have changed
Did you know that cakes made for real Princesses centuries ago weren't like the ones we serve today? They didn't have plastic toppers or buttercream frosting. Old world cakes were more bread-like and were sweetened with sugar and honey. They usually had fruit or nuts added.
In medieval times, people would hide things like coins and thimbles in the cake batter. It was believed that the person who found the coin would enjoy wealth all year while the unfortunate person who found the thimble would never marry. Some traditions, like making a wish and blowing out the candles in one breathe, have lasted through the years.

Start with accessories
Having a princess cake doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money. You don't even have to be very talented. If you don't have a lot of money to spend then make the cake yourself. Don't freak out. You don't have to make a castle or a princess from scratch. Who says you need those things anyways?
A great way to make a big impression is to start with a basic sheet cake. You can bake one yourself or buy one. You can make the icing pink and add accessories.
You could add a crown or tiara to the top of the cake. Sprinkle it with edible candy pearls or glitter. Lay a wand on top. Use sparkler candles for added flare. Try setting a couple of princess figurines on the top. There are so many easy things
you can do to have a princess feel without all the hassle.
Liven up the table with confetti, glitter or even plastic jewels. Use your imagination and have fun.

On October 15, 2009, this lens reached the Top 100 on Squidoo!On November 23, I took over custody. I have plans to develop the lens but it is a classic so the changes will be made fairly slowly. If you have suggestions on how the lens could be improved, then I would love to hear from you. Of course, it's also nice to be told that you like it aleady!
