The Princess Cake
One of my team members grew up in California and moved to Texas a few years ago. When she was a child, her mother worked at Disney. She was also infatuated by the characters at Disney and decided she wanted to play one of them when she became old enough. She always had her eye on the princess, Belle. Unfortunately, a move to Texas ended that chance. She told us this story several months ago, so we all patiently waited until it was her birthday, so we could surprise her. Her birthday was Friday, so my hubby baked her favorite cake, Red Velvet, and we threw her a princess themed birthday party. There was a castle shaped candle with little princess figures on her cake, princess plates, princess birthday card, and it goes on. Amazingly she never caught on to our plans and was totally surprised. Now I have to figure out what to do for the team members birthday that comes next month.
