A Princess Party!

This last weekend saw me up bright and early decorating 'Princess cupcakes'. These photos aren't the best but I was pleased with how they turned out. One of the physios at work was turning 30 and having a 'Princess' party to celebrate. She moved to Australia from South Africa with her husband last year so without family here thought I could help just a little with the catering!! I worked in the girls boarding house at school for the day, this term I am only doing the day shift as opposed to a 24 hour shift I had been doing so I was actually looking forward to it. I was hoping to get quite a bit of stitching done but the girls wanted to talk and before I knew it the day was over! I convinced the 'horsey' one to go to the party with me 'for just half an hour' ( I am a real home body) but as is often the case when we got there we had a great time. They had gone to so much trouble with the decorations and the food (think they catered for around 50 when there were only about 20 there!!) and everyone (except us!) were in costume! Tatum - the birthday girl - was Snow White, her husband prince charming, there was a ninja turtle, Pippi Longstocking, Minnie Mouse, the fairy godmother and the list goes on. We still only stayed about an hour, as I was driving I didn't partake of the punch or the vodka jelly shots, mmm fairly sure there would of been a few sore heads the next day! Oh to be young again!! We had party bags to take home, she really had thought of everything. Wish I could show you photos but didn't think to take my camera (guess that means I 'm still only a blogger in training!!).

Oh how absolutely brilliant, love the idea of the princess party, and those cakes look amazing, particularly how you've done the icing. Do tell you you got it to look so perfect, as opposed to my slap on like with a concrete trowel approach, LOL.

Just shows that you're never too old to enjoy Princess cupcakes.
