Maggie's 5th Birthday Princess Party!

My youngest niece, Maggie Jane, celebrated her 5th birthday today with family and friends. I was thrilled to be able to make her cake and style her dessert and lolly table.

Luckily I came across some fabulous free princess party printables a few months ago by Enchanted Events and Design. They were pink and had a pretty princess crown on them. These were used for the invitations, the menu labels, chocolate bar wrappers and cupcake toppers, as well as labels for the take home favour boxes.

{ Dessert and Lolly Table styled by me! }

 The castle cake was the centerpiece of the table. It was the first time I had made a castle cake and was thrilled with the end result. The bottom tier was red velvet cake with milk chocolate ganache, the top tier was caramel mud cake with milk chocolate ganache and the columns were jam rolls.

The rest of the dessert table consisted of vanilla and chocolate sponge cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, vanilla sugar cookies wands, chocolate bars, marshmallows, musk sticks and strawberry bon bons.

The guests received little party boxes filled to the brim with goodies which included lollies, stationary and a vanilla sugar cookie.

The birthday girl had a fabulous time with her family and friends. Here she is with her sisters and her dessert and lolly table.

Happy 5th Birthday to our beautiful Maggie Jane xxx

Fabulous suppliers:

White milk glass cake stands, tablecloth, ribbon and strawberry bon bons from Sweet Style.

Pink Cake Stand and Large Glass Candy Jars from Sharnel Dollar Designs.

It felt great being back in the kitchen and creating and baking again. I have a couple of birthday cakes to make this week, so it looks like my baking mojo has returned!

Enjoy the coming week.
