A co-worker's friend emailed me about making a crown cake for her daughter's birthday. The theme for the party was Mary Engelbreit's Queen for the Day. Cute idea! So she wanted a purple and yellow crown cake.
I'm still figuring out my cake serving sizes. I tend to make cakes too big and that was the case with this cake. The cake was really tall. Instead of making a really tall crown, I used fondant to make a "cloth" skirt around the bottom. It made it look a little more fancy!
