Happy B-day Moriah!

Ok.. So this would be my first Ballerina cake. I had free range on what to do.. I went back and forth with designs.. went thru about 5 because for the life of me I could not find a ballerina. Anywhere! But finally as a last resort went into Hallmark and found one in the ornament area from xmas.. What a find.. not only pink with crown, but blonde hair for the birthday girl.
It was also my first time using the Cricut Cake cutter.. (thanks Dominique!) boy o boy.. I learned a lot with it. One.. never use there pre done frosting sheets. They are paper thin, the frosting color comes thru the sheets and hard to work with. Next time I will use gum paste and roll it out myself.

All in all, it was a fun cake to do.. and the reaction of the Birthday girl was priceless.. well worth the time and all the re-designing of this cake.
I love the crown topper!
