A princess cake for one of my granddaughter's 7th Birthday tomorrow.. It is years since I used the bell shaped cake tin. Probably since my daughter was a child!
I had the doll head pick in my cake stash and thought it was time to use it.

When I was making the tiara it was evening, and I thought the beads were blue! As it happened I didn't have any blue beads of the right size - but I am sure the recipient won't mind - out of sunlight they look turquoise anyway! (as you can see from the picture taken indoors just after I made the tiara!)
I have to say the photos really don't do the cake justice - it looks so much better in real life.
